Education And Protection
Because education is very essential for future development, IHR considers providing education a priority step. Through establishing many schools, IHR aims at raising educated mindful children who are capable of building their lives and defending their case. IHR established many schools in diverse residential areas to facilitate receiving education for all children. We make sure that education is provided for every child, because educating one child is an accomplishment for the future.
