The Arab Cultural Society started in Iraq in 2003 and established Culture for All, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) which is helping the community in Baghdad to gain computer skills and is training women in sewing skills to help them become self-sufficient. Recently, Culture for All set up five Citizen’s Advice Bureaux with the help of the United Nations and other international bodies.
The Children’s Skills Academy project has many components (Education and Training, Health Clinic, Accommodation, Catering). We are actively seeking partners to help meet these various needs.
