We never thought it would be possible.

But due to adapting, and responding to the current situation, we are not only able to continue fulfilling our mission in a distanced but connected world.

But also work in places that previously were impossible.

As you know, we have launched Virtual Team TIE, a new programme – especially relevant right now – where companies can develop their future leaders, and impact the world, all virtually.

Necessity really is the mother of invention here at TIE, and setting up this new virtual model is, quite literally, taking us places we could not go previously.

We are thrilled to say that we are partnering with the Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights, to help ISIS survivors in Kurdistan Iraq, through a TIE project.

The Jiyan Foundation supports survivors of human rights violations, defends fundamental freedoms and promotes democratic values in Iraq and Syria. They have established a network of twelve facilities in northern Iraq and northern Syria, where ISIS is still active, supporting thousands of women, men, and children every year. And as part of their Programme for Trauma Care and Health, they run a Healing Garden in Kurdistan Iraq, which works as a sanctuary for trauma survivors and where patients participate in art therapy.

This Virtual Team TIE project will help the Jiyan Foundation monetize its Healing Garden by marketing their patient artwork, much of which is very good, and creating an online store on their website, with the objective of raising money to support the organization’s programmes and beneficiaries.

A project like this has so much potential for social impact! Aside from ensuring the sustainability of the Jiyan Foundation’s work by providing them with another source of funding, it will also enable them to change the lives of many more ISIS survivors.

This project is ready to go – all that is missing is for a company to sign up for our Team TIE programme, and voice interest in helping this organisation.

And, of course, TIE will be there every step of the way, leveraging our expertise of 13 years of connecting the private sector with the social sector, to make sure this project will be highly impactful for all stakeholders involved.

But don’t delay. I can’t see this project being available for long…

Now is the time for the private sector to step up and support the world when it needs it the most.

TIE prides itself on having the opportunity to help important causes all the while developing better leaders, who will be better equipped to withstand turmoil, such as the pandemic we live in.

Please do get in touch if you would like to know more.

Let’s do this!

Better Leaders. Better Companies. Better World.
