Operation I CAN

"OPERATION I CAN” is not just another clever Army acronym; it’s short for “Iraqi Children Assistance Network.”
I CAN connects thousands of Iraqi children to people throughout the world who donate school supplies. Thanks to deployed Soldiers, these supplies reach schools in villages and cities throughout Iraq.

Many donors have implemented the project in their local neighborhoods, lobbying for support from others.

Individual donations of $3.59, a small amount by U.S. standards, pay the average cost of one Arabic schoolbook and have significantly increased Iraqi children’s opportunities to learn.
