Emma is a Kurdish word that means “we”. The name of our organisation defines us as it is our principle to work together as one team and from different backgrounds and beliefs. It includes everyone.

Emma Organisation was established in 2013 by a group of women activists and experts in various fields, such as gender equality, law, education, health and mental health.

We are a non-profit organisation providing programs to the community in general, particularly women and vulnerable groups in the Kurdistan Region, on the following areas,

  • Gender Equality;
  • Rehabilitation;
  • Capacity Building; and
  • Development.
