Al Salihat Girls Academy

34% of girls do not advance to secondary education according to, while 30% of women are illiterate in Iraq. Development and Relief Foundation understands the importance of having an educated society, and DRF believes women play an important role in educating a society. Therefore, we go to such great lengths here at the Development and Relief Foundation to ensure we make an impact on the life of young women.

Al-Salihat Girls Academy started out as a dream, but eventually DRF purchased land, acquired permits, and laid the foundation for a new girl’s school, which opened in November 2014. A school which has the capability to educate over 400 young ladies from grade 7 to 12. A majority of our students are orphans however there are a few exceptions of low-income advanced students which pass placement tests to attend Al-Salihat.

We would like to thank all the donors that have made this possible. Also, all donations made to Al-Salihat Girls Academy will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor!

As of September 2021, Al-Salihat Girls Academy teaches over 260 intelligent young women. Graduates of the school have been accepted at prestigious and advanced universities such as medical, pharmaceutical, dentistry, and engineering schools.
