ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan24) – The American University of Kurdistan (AUK) is looking for volunteers interested in joining their foundation and participating in the next initiative mission of supporting the IDPs, refugees and victims of the ongoing conflict.
AUK at Duhok was established in 2014 and seeks to foster respect for learning, knowledge and genuine academic achievement, according to the University’s official website.
The University was officially opened in March 2016 by the President of the Kurdistan Region Masoud Barzani. AUK is a private, non-profit organization that currently has 300 students enrolled, studying five academic disciplines.
The University provides the population of Kurdistan an opportunity to build a better post-conflict future for the younger generation and aims to be “the path to excellence.”
The AUK Foundation, a branch of the University, consists of student volunteers. These volunteers strive to carry out initiatives that involve helping Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), refugees and people that currently suffer from the ongoing conflict and violence in Iraq regardless of their ethnic and religious background.
The foundation has organized some initiatives in the last months by distributing needs to refugees and IDPs in the Kurdistan Region as well as entertaining children in the camps.
The foundation calls on people who would like to join their initiatives to sign up and help the people affected by violence and conflict.
