Mr Al-Naib is familiar with the situation in Baghdad from his last visit of three months, which was four years ago after 25 years of exile. It will be necessary to return to Baghdad soon to evaluate the possibilities for obtaining suitable premises. All possibilities will be investigated, from rental of a house to the purchase of an existing but disused school or other suitable facility. The clear preference would be to obtain land in a safe area upon which a purpose-built model village could be constructed in stages and start to be used immediately.
Personnel: teachers, manager, other staff
With regard to a manager for the project, there are currently ten trustworthy candidates. Mr Al-Naib will spend most of his time at the beginning of the project to make sure that everything is set up smoothly. He will introduce potential managers to the proposed project and speak to the right officials in the Iraqi Government to get their support.
It will not be a problem to recruit qualified schoolteachers and occupational trainers as well as provide teaching online by the Internet and Satellite.
We would like to start the project as soon as possible. If we can educate the children in the Middle East we can make a safer world for everyone.
