Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights
The Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights is a non-profit organization promoting the mental well-being, physical rehabilitation, and social reintegration of survivors of (sexual) violence, torture and trauma in Kurdistran-Iraq. Clients receive free-of-charge psychotherapeutic treatment, medical care, and socio-legal counselling. In addition, the Jiyan Foundation seeks to protect survivors of human rights violations and prevent future acts of abuse through professional training, human rights education, public awareness-raising and political advocacy. Our program for children and adolescents reflects all of these services and activities, including age-specific support for minor patients, family interventions, and training for professionals working with children and adolescents.
Iraqi Al-Amal (IAA)
Iraqi Al-Amal Association (IAA) is a non-political, non-secretarian and non-profit organisation of volunteers actively engaged in projects for the benefit and wellbeing of the Iraqi population. Al-Amal was established in 1992 in the midst of the horrific conditions prevailing after the Second Gulf War with the aim of providing aid to relieve the suffering of the Iraqi people. Al-Amal started its work in Iraqi Kurdistan where many programmes and projects were implemented.
In May 2003, the head office of Al-Amal was opened in Baghdad. Its activities and services are now provided throughout Iraq ranging from health services to training and from capacity building to advocacy. The aim is for the rehabilitation of the people and for influencing the social consciousness towards a creation of a democratic state.
Its programmes aim to combat all forms of violence and discrimination, the promotion of the culture of Human Rights, Gender Equality, tolerance and social peace, the carrying-out of income-generating projects as well as providing psychosocial assistance and training courses to vulnerable sectors, so that they can participate efficiently in public life. Al-Amal also works on law reform.
