DONATE

We don’t do handouts. 

We’re building an industry.

OUR THREE YEAR PLAN

Help us turn that into a reality.

WOMEN'S ONLY CO-WORKING SPACE BY 2023

To increase the number of women in Iraq's tech sector, they need a safe space that caters to culture so that they can launch their businesses, meet like-minded people and hustle hard.

We're looking for copywriting mentors and curriculum builders

WHY DONATE

Digital skills come in a variety of forms, from coding to product management. 

There are currently no programs in Iraq that focus on digital copywriting, yet there are thousands of Humanities graduates that cannot find employment. 

By teaching creative digital skills, we’re empowering people for a career in a thriving industry.

Finding skilled copywriters in Iraq for both English and Arabic is a huge challenge. Many local businesses rely on hiring remotely to fill this gap, or spend six months on training.

By creating a pipeline of writers, we can not only provide opportunities for local talent but also help businesses find the right people to improve their marketing, increase conversions, and conduct international outreach. 

 

Words inspire and influence as our generation moves from the printing press revolution towards digital copy. 

For Iraq to move forward, we must move past the war rhetoric and focus on its success and growth.

We tackle this through our platform and trainings. We empower Iraqi writers to generate content and document the future in their words. 

The economic benefits of building a technology and creative industry is  immeasurable. These industries have a vast amount of opportunities available for individuals, businesses and nations.

We’re leaving behind a long-lasting legacy that will benefit Iraq for generations.

Not only will graduates of our digital copywriting program be able to get a job locally, they’ll also stand a better chance in working remotely for international clients. 

Copywriting is an in-demand digital role and graduates can even start their own businesses.

Over five years, each cohort of 15 writers in our Digital Copywriting Program will contribute to Iraq’s GDP by up to $4 million. 

Entrepreneurs will contribute even more.

We have to think long term about our impact and the role we play in a country.

YAAAS!
