WADI e.V.

The German-Iraqi charity WADI is receiving the Roland Berger Human Dignity Award 2017 for its longstanding and successful campaign for the human rights and autonomy of Iraqi citizens. For the past 25 years, WADI has initiated and run a wide range of programs in northern Iraq – from information campaigns about female genital mutilation to children’s education programs to medical and psychological first aid offered to Yazidi victims who have been tortured by the terrorist organization IS. It is the founder’s wish that other organizations around the world follow the example set by WADI.
