Welcome to NWE Organization in Halabja

Nwe is a registered NGO, and is located in Halabja, Iraqi Kurdistan. Our goal is to empower women and we run projects and programs; like the first Community Radio in the region, and campaigns against Female Genital Mutilation, and other forms of domestic violence. Our Women’s Center is open every day, offering a space for women from the region as well for refugees from Syria and Central Iraq.

Halabja is widely known in the world for having suffered under the chemical attacks of Saddam Husseins army in 1988. We are keeping the memory alive and our aim is to spread a message of peace and co-existence from here. We deeply believe that peace can only be reached by promoting equality, democratic values and caring about the environment.
