Iraq: The Story of Life, Stories from Refugees and Displaced Persons in Iraq

We will train residents of the Darashakran and Kawergosk refugee camps outside Erbil, Iraq to use simple technology already in their hands to share stories of their lives as refugees and displaced persons with audiences in Iraq and abroad. Participants will be taught digital storytelling, democratic participation skills and publishing to a website. We will collaborate with Warvin Foundation for Women to train 25 participants over three days, set up mentors from the Iraqi Network for Social Media, and create partnerships within the camp for participants to train other camp residents.
