Un Ponte per … (UPP) is an Italian NGO which has been present in Iraq since 1991. Initially called Un ponte per Baghdad, since its establishment UPP has worked closely with local civil society organizations in order to promote solidarity initiatives in favor of Iraqi people who suffered from the war. Among its first interventions in the country were emergency projects, health care, educational and cultural programs and other projects that aimed to recover the cultural heritage, support civil society and defend human rights, with a special focus on the protection of detainees. UPP works for peace and solidarity among peoples by facilitating encounters among different cultures, languages, religions and traditions with the idea of promoting a more equal and pacific coexistence.
