ETTC Success Stories | Kurdistan

ETTC is ERRIN's local partner supporting returnees in Iraq © ETTC

First-person stories, testimonials of returnees who have successfully reintegrated back in their country of origin, are the cornerstone of our communication activities. Through the eyes of our beneficiaries, you have a chance to see how ERRIN reintegration assistance works in practice.

In Iraq, positive feedback from the ERRIN returnees towards the reintegration services highlights the good relationship, communication and support provided our local partner, the European Technology and Training Centre (ETTC). Watch how ETTC help people build their futures back in Kurdistan.
