WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

HAWAR.help is a registered non-profit organization with offices in Duhok, Iraq and Berlin, Germany. In September 2018, HAWAR.help opened the Back to Life Women’s Empowerment Center at a refugee camp in Northern Iraq to directly support women in the rebuilding of their lives. The Hawar team is made up of passionate individuals from diverse faiths and backgrounds committed to empowering women in the building of a tolerant and inclusive world.

VISION

We envision a tolerant, peaceful and just world where human rights are respected. A world where individuals can express themselves confidently and safely regardless of their gender, ethnicity or religion.

MISSION

We empower women who have been persecuted based on their religion, race or gender. We build tolerant and open-minded societies by creating opportunities for education, justice and reconciliation.

 

STRATEGY

We are guided by our belief in democratic values and that all people are created equal. We bring together diverse groups of people through projects and advocacy efforts in Iraq, Germany and the United States.
