C4JR welcomes Nadia’s Initiative to the alliance. As the 26th member of the coalition Nadia’s Initiative will work alongside other member organizations to seek reparative justice for civilian victims of atrocity crimes perpetrated during the ISIS conflict in Iraq. C4JR members are looking forward to working together with Nadia´s Initiative on recognizing, honoring and repairing the harm done to the survivors of conflict related sexual violence in Iraq.
Nadia’s Initiative (NI) is dedicated to rebuilding communities in crisis and advocating globally for survivors of sexual violence. NI works with the local community and a variety of implementing partners on the ground in Sinjar, Iraq to design and support projects that restore education, healthcare, livelihoods, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), and women’s empowerment in the region. All NI programs are community-driven, survivor centric, and work to promote long term peace-building. NI advocates governments and international organizations to support efforts to rebuild Sinjar, seek justice for Yazidis, improve security in the region, and support survivors of sexual violence worldwide.
