WASEL TASEL Humanitarian Foundation
WASEL TASEL was founded as a volunteer-based initiative in March 2015. It was born as a response to the displacement crisis that befell Iraq in recent years. We adhere to four principles (humanity, integrity, neutrality, and independence) when working with our beneficiaries, which include the displaced (IDPEs), the syrian refugees, and the host community. Our new vision is focused on the following areas: education, health, development, relief, and social initiatives.
As of 22 July 2019, we became a registered Iraqi non-governmental corporation with certificate number 1I1907043 issued by the Department of Non-Governmental Organizations, General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers. Wasel Tasel Humanitarian Foundation management believe in women empowerment so %35 of the volunteers and employees are females.
One of the most important values through which we commit to our partners, our supporters, and out beneficiaries.
All the work that is implemented by our corporation is subject to the principle of transparency and clarity.
We are committed to the values and principles that ensure the dignity of the beneficiaries and respect the customs of local communities while ensuring that this does not compromise our business standards.
We have the passion to make positive change through our projects and initiatives.
