  6. As a member of Youth Initiative Program team work, I am so proud to be a member of this team. The secret of success for the Youth Initiative Program implementation and achievements in Iraq were: The integration roles and responsibilities between the main 2 partners (Microfinance Institutions and the Business Development centers/NGOs), Well trained and grassroots oriented professional field staff, and the professional management strategy and planning.
    Finally I am sure Youth Initiative program in Iraq had been achieved a great touchable CHANGES on Iraq’s youth economical lives.

  9. Thank you for the support for the Iraqi Youth Initiative of USAID-Tijara as it is greatly appreciated! This is a great program that my team is very proud of where we are building relationships that will benefit generations to come.

    I do want to clarify that this is “foreign aid from USAID” where collaboration with in-country leaders both American and Iraqi (not in the US but boots on ground in Iraq) designed and implemented this Initiative throughout the country funded by then-US Ambassador Christopher Hill in 2010. Our upcoming Showcase Award Ceremony this 31st of May 2012 is in collaboration with USAID-Tijara, USAID/Iraq and the Iraqi Ministry of Youth & Sport.

  10. More people need to see what an insanely great initiative this is! What Iraq needs is economic progress built up by a vibrant Iraqi civil society, and not fueled by foreign aid/investment. Follow their Facebook updates!
