Pioneered by a team of 5 professionals, IMPACT was established and registered as a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), following the success of a livelihoods project that was implemented by the same team prior to the inception of IMPACT. Over 1,000 individuals (each household typically represents 5 beneficiaries in KRI) have benefited from the livelihoods intervention through job placement services, with 250 beneficiaries received Employability training to enhance their employability skills. Through its evolving transition, our innovative activities will continue to have a significant impact on the lives of marginalized groups, including women and children to have secure and resilient lives by increasing their access to income generation opportunities and other necessary resources; empowering vulnerable groups through capacity building, trainings and education initiatives; maintaining existing, and developing new, regional and local partnership; and being able to quickly respond to the changing needs in building a more sustainable and just society
Our vision is to create a just and sustainable world where all people, especially the underprivileged, enjoy equal access to necessary resources and live in safety and dignity.
IMPACT’ mission is to help alleviate poverty and inequality, by facilitating empowerment of vulnerable and marginalized communities to increase their resilience.
The following are our core values that will guide our operations:
