Education is one of the greatest needs of Christians who are still living in Iraq today. Due to financial constraints, Christian students are deprived of appropriate educational resources and technology such as computers. The Philos Project’s advocacy campaign, Digital Nineveh, seeks to raise $25,000 USD to provide much needed computer labs for Christian schools in northern Iraq. It is the campaign’s objective to not only support these students who had to endure tremendous hardship, but also to promote change and pave the path for a brighter future.
