The World Federation of KSIMC believes that it is the fundamental right of every human being to have access to education. In Arab States, 1 million children are leaving school before completing their primary education. UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) has stated that during the 1980’s, the Iraqi education system was recognized as one of the most developed systems in the Arab states. After two and a half decades of wars, unstable political conditions and an ever-deteriorating security situation, the Iraqi education system has been witnessing serious and critical shortcomings.
