Vim Foundation is an organization that was launched in 2019 in Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan region of Iraq. It is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that pinpoints society’s gaps and fills those gaps through the best means, takes society into consideration, and acts upon the existing deficiencies.

Commitment to developing our community

We seek to take on each and every matter that effects our society.

Vim Foundation is trying to solve the problems that lead the community in a negative direction and work to find a suitable solution to bring progress and stability to Kurdistan and Iraq.

Our agenda includes training courses and workshops on new work ideas, gender-related issues, culture, environmental preservation and animal rights. Our endeavors are many, because at Vim Foundation, we firmly associate our focal points with the way to empowerment and sustainability.
