The Tammuz Organization for Social Development
The Tammuz Organization for Social Development was founded in 1997 in the north of Iraq under the name of Al-Wafaa Association. In May 2003, the Organization opened an office in Baghdad and it currently operates six offices across the country: in Erbil, Thy Qar, Babel, Missan, Basra et Anbar. The Organization supports community programs such as health, education, vocational training and pubic consultation, and research and evaluation programs. Since the electoral process conducted in 2005, Tammuz deploys throughout the country thousands of volunteers who observe the election and report any election-law violation.
