Social Program

Each local committee has its own amazing social program. Generally, I can give some clues regarding those ;)

-There are numerous ancient historic places in each LC. So one possible social program will be visiting those places. Through which you can learn more about Kurdistan and how the prehistoric civilizations were like! We also have many museums of both historic and modern art in the region. 

-Kurdistan is well known for its wild nature; its mountains, waterfalls, and valleys. Another social program will be enjoying going on a hike, should you be interested in nature :)

-There are lots and lots of awesome social programs for you, and we would like to keep them a surprise for you :)
