In 2013 the idea of founding a youth group provoked a group of youths from Halabja, soon after they founded Halabja’s Color Group, to empower the role of youth people and youth leadership in civic engagement. In a short period of time, from 2013 to 2014, the group held various admirable activities among them: celebrating and commemorating national days and events and awarding successful teachers of Halabja province.

From 2014, HCG’s activities and its board of directors’ future plans needed expansion in order to leave a better impact. Hence, the idea of advancing to organization put forward. With persistence and the same determined and hardworking team in 2015 Karin Organization for Developing Youth Abilities (KODYA) established.
