Biographical Details

"Generation Iraq was conceived and founded by Tamara Quinn. Tamara is an American-Iraqi dedicated to a vision of Iraq as it can and should be. This vision is tempered by the realization that the country is far from ideal at this time and there is much work and sacrifice requSired to realize the vision.

"After the war in 2003, Tamara felt the need to be involved with helping the country rebuild and reshape itself. She was a co-founder of WAFDI, Women's Alliance for a Democratic Iraq, which promoted women's rights and issues after the war. This work brought her notice from the Department of Defense and she was asked to join the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad. After thirty years in the US, Tamara returned to her native home as a part of the Iraq Reconstruction and Development Council (IRDC), and spent several months in Baghdad working to help provide a better future for Iraq. In her time there she developed a special interest in assisting young people in addition to women's issues. After returning to the United States in 2004, Tamara devoted herself full-time to the future of Iraq. She joined the NGO Spirit of America as Director of School Partners. Here she established herself as an energetic and creative force able to get things done and get programs in place.

"In 2006, Tamara left Spirit of America to found Generation Iraq, an NGO dedicated to the education and uplifting of Iraqi youth." [1]
