How the children of Iraq are educated will determine the future of their nation and the world they will inherit. SWIC supports the children at St. George’s School of the Redeemer (SOTR) in Baghdad, and St. Efram’s in Qaraqosh/Bahkdadi. Learn more

We can help rekindle the flame of hope.

Iraq’s Christian communities need our help. In ISIS’s medieval war against modern culture, Christians and other minority religious groups were ruthlessly persecuted, killed, and forced to flee their homes. Their livelihoods, dwellings, and churches were destroyed, and their doors marked with a symbol of bigotry. Although internationally their struggles for revival have often been ignored, there is a burning ember of hope alive in the heart of the Christians who remain. You can help rebuild their lives.

Farming has long sustained Christians on the Nineveh Plains: a fertile region in northern Iraq where Christians have lived since the 1st Century. By funding agricultural businesses, SWIC is providing a lifeline of economic sustainability to these once-thriving communities. And understanding that the future always rests with children, we also invest in education; funding schools for a new, prosperous, and diverse Iraq. Today, we are one of the most successful organizations operating on the Nineveh plains.
