About Us

Dar al Zahra is a school for Iraqi orphans. It is a project of Al Anwar An Najafiya foundation, which is an NGO under the patronage of Grand Ayatollah Sheikh Bashir Al-Najafi (May Allah prolong his life)

The population of Iraq has suffered from decades of conflict, resulting in humanitarian catastrophes and a disproportionately large number of orphans.

Celebrating Eid!
This year's Eid celebration was extra special for our students! We wanted to add to the festive spirit and went beyond our usual cash gifts. Instead, we provided brand-new clothes for our students to wear on Eid!
Primary school girls received beautiful dresses, while senior girls were delighted with traditional Abayas, and the boys weren't left out – they each got a long robe (Dishdasha) to complete their Eid outfit.
A Momentous Day at The Holy Shrine of Imam Ali (a.s.)!

Our students participated in a special ceremony at the حرم الإمام علي (عليه السلام) [Haram of Imam Ali (a.s.)] to celebrate both بلوغ [bulugh] (coming of age) for boys and girls, as well as graduation ceremony grade 12-class of 2023.

The ceremony at the حرم [Haram] was a beautiful and spiritual way to mark these important milestones in our students' lives. It was followed by a motivational Visit to The Central Office of His Eminence The Grand Ayatollah Sheikh Basheer Hussein Al-Najafy (May Allah Prolong His Life).
