Schools And Water Distribution Work For Positive Change
The village of Dohuk has undergone a number of positive changes over the last several months. Two new schools, a renovated Water network plant under construction, and a number of other new construction projects has given the local citizens a lot of confidence.
The two new schools are in the Shindohka and Malta neighborhoods, and they both are 12 room buildings that include administrative areas, lab rooms, gardens and a play area. Both of the schools are built on a successful past base template of schools used in the region that have been highly successful.
The schools will each support up to 2,400 children in two sessions a day, and they are both creating employment for 40 people, at each school. Each school will support the 40 teacher positions, as well as employment for workmen and support staff for each school.
Education is an element of all successful civilizations, and as such Iraq has been putting a lot of different emphasis on education. Each of the new schools will feature a perimeter wall, a guardhouse, and a maintenance room.
Part of the positive trend is the involvement by the US Army Corps of Engineers, training new engineers to build and deal with infrastructure. The US Army has now succeeded in training new Iraqi engineers and workmen, who have worked hard in building the two schools.
