Some have called them a “lost generation.”

It’s estimated that there are over 1 million school-aged girls and boys who are currently displaced in Iraq from the impact of ISIS and the Syrian Civil War. Roughly 70 percent of these children have lost almost a year’s worth or more of education. For many, the choice to pick up a gun and fight with one group or another could be their only option to survive.

In addition to this, one in every five schools are no longer functioning as a result of a lack of funding in the Kurdistan Federal Region of northern Iraq. This has caused some classrooms to grow to one hundred children or more— an environment that cannot possibly cultivate a healthy education. Children who still choose to attend one of these schools must walk much longer distances because their families cannot afford other forms of transportation. Many parents will eventually keep their kids home due to the extreme weather in the summer and winter months, as well as the safety risk of a child traveling alone in this hostile environment. Because of all of these obstacles, the number of uneducated children will climb. The challenge is staggering.

World Compassion is now expanding our work in Iraq from relief to relief and rehabilitation. Education is key in rehabilitating and transforming the landscape of Iraq and in reaching what news outlets have referred to as the “lost generation.”

Right now, World Compassion is investing in launching a school that will educate up to 200 students. We have Christians on staff in Iraq who will not only ensure that these children will – get a wonderful education but will also be shown the love of Jesus Christ so that they might be reached with the Gospel and may reach their families as well.
