WADI is a German-Iraqi NGO, founded in Germany in 1991 and began its activities in Northern Iraq in 1993.

Promoting human rights and supporting the democratic reconstruction of Iraq are one of the main goals of our work. Our projects in Iraq therefore focus on empowering women and assisting women in distress. WADI’s staff members in Northern Iraq, recruited in their communities, combat violence against women and struggle to improve the social and economic status of women in Iraqi society. WADI also supports marginalized groups, such as prisoners and Internally Displaced People (IDP’s) . Additionally our programs aim to encourage and to empower local NGOs, democratic organizations and women’s networks.
