Un ponte per… (UPP) is an Italian Ngo and no-profit organization established in 1991. It began its activities as “Un Ponte per Baghdad”, right after the end of bombings on Iraq, with the aim of organizing solidarity initiatives in support of the Iraqi civil society.
Later on, the Un ponte per… activities have been extended to Serbia and other MENA countries.
In Iraq, during the last 20 years the association has been implementing projects in the fields sanitation, culture and education thanks to the support of Italian and international donors.
After the 2003 conflict, UPP started to support Iraqi civil society in its effort to protect the cultural heritage, the human and environmental rights, the minorities, and to defend freedom of expression and association. Following the last regional conflicts the association has been also active in the field of humanitarian interventions, first aid and on-going distribution of basic living needs.
