Chaldeans TEACH is proud to fund a makeshift school in northern Iraq where there are over 100 Chaldean families living in an apartment complex (pictured) where 3 families live in each apartment & the children are now able to attend school! This could not have been possible without the help of the sponsors & patrons of the fundraiser last year!
Hundreds of children begin their day with a commute to get an education. This normally wouldn’t raise any red flags, except when it begins to endanger the safety a child’s life on a daily basis.
In particular, there is a child who makes his way to and from school each day in a hurried run because of the dangers that the road presents him with…
Let’s take a step back and let this hit home. Imagine your child, walking to school here in the United States; now imagine your child walking miles to and from school each day in the frigid cold or blistering heat, through muddy and wet roads without any protection. Now, let’s just add one more detail, imagine your child doing this in one of the most war-torn countries in the world.
This is reality for so many mothers, fathers, and orphans. There are many children living in the refugee camp in Dawoodia that walk to school in the Village of Mangesh, which is roughly a 2 mile walk.
Teachers Educating and Creating Hope “TEACH” is a volunteer group consisting of Chaldean educators who assist displaced Iraqi Christians and other minorities with educational, humanitarian & various needs. To put it simply, TEACH gives hope to innocent families and children of war.
The Goal: The cost to transport these children to and from their camp to the village school: from Dawoodia to Mangesh is $550/month, from Mangesh to Dohuk is $1,200/month, from Dawoodia to Sersing is $900/month. TEACH is looking for a group of donors to raise the money so that we can alleviate the suffering of our children overseas.
