"Sulaymaniyah is one of the most picturesque places I’ve ever visited, flanked by majestic mountains, rolling hills, and glassy lakes. But, driving up into those mountains the evidence of decades of war and conflict is apparent; dozens of landmine signs warning of anti-personnel mines, anti-tank mines, mortars, and other unexploded ordnance mark the hillsides."

That's a bit from the latest LinkedIn post by our team member Maren Rojas, on her recent trip to Sulaymaniyah, Iraq, working with youth soccer players and their coaches on trauma-sensitive skills. Maren is the Director of Sport here at Edgework Consulting.
