Al Salihat Girls Academy


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

CARF supports Al-Salihat Girls Academy, 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 educationally advanced students which are required to pass placement tests to attend Al-Salihat.

As of September 2022, Al-Salihat Girls Academy teaches over 260 intelligent young women. Graduates of the school have been accepted at prestigious and advanced universities including medical, pharmaceutical, dentistry, and engineering schools.
