About WADI

Since more than 20 years Wadi is promoting human rights and supporting the development of a democratic civil society in the Middle East. WADI does so through programs and projects that focus on empowering women and advancing their political and social equality.

WADI’s northern Iraqi staffs live and work in their own communities, which increases their credibility and understanding of the complex issues confronting women on a daily basis. They work to combat violence against women and to improve women’s social and economic status in Iraqi society.

Founded in 1992, WADI is a Frankfurt, Germany-based non-governmental organization (NGO) and is recognized as a non-profit association in Germany. Donations are tax-deductible. Nearly 99 percent of WADI’s operating budget directly funds the organization’s projects and programs. Financial and accounting reports are available upon request.

Akram Mohammad Nadir (born in 1976) works since 2003 as WADI's driver. He survived the chemical gas attack on Halabja when he was twelve years old, fleeing with his family to Iran. On his return, he was captured by Iraqi soldiers and imprisoned in the notorious detenion center Topsawa near Kirkuk. Boys and men were regularly deported to the desert and executed. When Akram was already listed for deportation, he was saved by a general amnesty. In 1991, Akram moved to Suleymania and worked as a taxi driver.
