“He who does not learn as a child, does not progress as an adult.”
Imam Ali (as)

Construction of this new school in Najaf has already begun and The World Federation is pleased to support this initiative to ensure that children have the opportunity to continue their education in hope for a brighter more prosperous future.

The World Federation is seeking donors and sponsors to help fund the construction of 8 classrooms as part of the Al-Aqila Middle School Project . The cost of building one classroom is $22,470 USD / £13,375 GBP. Your donation will ensure that thousands of children in Najaf have access to excellent education. Click here to read full proposal

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.
