“Now I’m an independent woman and proud of myself. Thank you WRO for helping me improve my life”

Nour, a refugee from Syria

Baharka District, Erbil Governorate


Nour had no money, no job and was in a very bad psychological state when she came to WRO’s center in Baharka. She was desperate and couldn’t work because of her lack of experience. WRO offered her psychological support and encouraged her to participate in one the center’s vocational trainings, Nour chose the sewing course. After one month of training, Nour received certification and a start up kit from WRO and with this she decided to start her own sewing shop. She emptied one of the rooms in her house and started sewing for her family, friends and neighbours. She is now receiving many orders and affording a very good income.
