About the campaign

It is active in 19 provinces across the country and supported by over 28 young volunteering groups who run reading clubs and educational fun activities which promote learning and inclusion.

Reaching Baghdad and Mosul Peace Carnivals 

In November 2019, youth volunteers and British Council staff attended Peace Carnivals in Baghdad and Mosul. The events were attended by over 9000 young people and families.

In Iraq over 13 percent children drop out of primary school each year. Combined the two events reached over 8 million Iraqis.
