Mr. Fehri had an official visit to Republic of Irak in August in order to defend access to education for children refugees. He had meetings at the highest diplomatic level before visiting the children refugees in Domiz to discuss about access to education. He asked Iraqi Prime Minister to give the royalties of his last books, which are the most read in Tunisia, through « Amir Fehri Foundation » in order to build schools for the children who do not have access to education in Irak. Indeed, he is is very concerned by this matter and thinks that non-access to education is a real danger for future generations as it should be a human right for all.
Mr. Fehri will also share with all leaders of countries and governments during the upcoming international summits the experience he will have as a young child, visiting children refugees camps in Irak. He wants to ask them to do something to support children refugees and include this matter as one of the most important today and to declare his worldwide project concerning access to education for children refugees.
Mr. Fehri is actually collaborating with the President of European Commission, through “Amir Fehri Foundation” in order to open the first International school in Mossoul. This school will be a real symbol for education as it has been decided that it will be built inside the camps for refugees and it will give a new chance to all children refugees. It will give access to the official school programs of the countries participating in this school. Children refugees will be able to continue studying in this official International school and then decide if they want or not to leave Irak in order to go abroad.
