MCC supports a peace education school at Al Hadi Youth Club, located in an impoverished neighborhood of Baghdad. The project will reach some 160 children over four sessions, targeting children who have dropped out of school. Children will learn about peace, acceptance and tolerance through activities such as drama, music, sports and stories. $40 pays the cost of classroom materials and a school bag for one student.
MCC Global Family funds support computer, peace, and environmental education programs in five schools, as well as operational and program support for Help the Afghan Children’s first model school in Afghanistan (see page 3 for more on Help the Afghan Children). $300 provides one annual Global Family sponsorship.
