About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


EAC Partnership Iraq

Calendar icon
The EAC Partnership Iraq project is implemented by the UNESCO's Iraq office and seeks to enroll 30,000 out of school children in four governorates of Iraq in quality primary education programs.

The project aims to provide a full, accelerated course of quality primary education benefiting those out of school children that are currently not targeted through governmental and non-governmental interventions.

The overall project is planned in two phases over four years. EAC currently supports Phase 1 which works with four governorates (Erbil, Nineva, Baghdad, and Basrah) to enroll 30,000 students in accelerated and accredited education programs.  Phase 1 will also see 100 schools built or rehabilitated.  These schools will be provided with teaching and learning materials.

Phase 2 will expand the scope and the geographical coverage of the initiative to reach more than 150,000 out of school children in eight additional governorates selected for their vulnerability.

The intervention is based on community participation and involvement and develops a holistic educational package including the provision of a full course primary education through an accelerated learning program and additional support programs including health, counseling and family mobilization to ensure enrolment in the targeted communities.
