With the support of Shlama Foundation, khoyada organized a camp in Nahla.

The first day included games and educational lectures under the title “Social cohesion and development of humanity”, which were facilitated by trainer Mariam Bahjat.

The second day began with a workshop on traditional dances, followed by a lecture by Mariam Bahjat on how to turn the negative energy in your life into positive energy. The day ended with a visit by Mr. Alen Tapsima, the secretary of khoyada, along with Robert Nawzad, head of khoyada’s Duhok branch.

On the third day, khoyada held a celebration of the Nusardil festival, with the locals in Nahla, at the Nahla tourist resort. The celebration involved traditional dances, poems and songs, including Assyrian “Raweh”.
