Women Empowerment Iraq

The Art of Living Women’s Empowerment Program in Iraq addresses women’s emotional and psychological needs, and gives them the skills they need to achieve economic stability for themselves and their families.

Trauma Relief Workshops to release stress

The women undergo trauma relief workshops to release the buildup of stress, fear of attack, and lack of security. The workshops also help to release the trauma caused by loss of friends and family members, and the stress of being the family’s sole breadwinner and caregiver.

Vocational Training to build confidence and economic independence

Once the women have established a sense of stability and inner peace for themselves, they undergo vocational training programs that give them the skills, confidence and enthusiasm to change their lives and care for their families. These skills help them to achieve an economic status where self-sustainability and community leadership are possible.

Vocational Training Programs are offered in:
