Since 2016 DhK has been supporting displaced Yazidi students. In the academic year 2018/19 30 students of the University of Mosul and 20 students of the University of Duhok were thus supported.
Iraqi Kurdistan with its 5.3 million inhabitants is currently home to 2 million refugees and displaced persons from Iraq and Syria, amongst them many Yazidis. Amongst the displaced there are students from the University of Mosul that had to interrupt their studies or had to continue their studies at universities in Duhok or Erbil while they are living in refugee camps.
