Supporting orphans into education
Around four years of conflict and severe economic decline in Yemen has resulted in a humanitarian crisis. As a result, children are disproportionately affected.
The conflict has taken a severe toll on children’s access to education. Over two million children, “specially orphans” and young people remain out of school. The result was depriving them of an education that could be life-changing for their future.
We have been Supporting orphans into education by many relief and development projects to help the most vulnerable, including children and young people.
One of the most important Sponsorship of orphans programmes we’ve implemented has been one to one . Due to increasing living costs. Many families have been unable to afford to send the children to school. Therefore, fewer orphans enrolled or dropped out of school.
This Waqf-funded project provides an educational kit such as stationery and school bags. Thus, children will have the equipment they need to start school. While distributing the materials, volunteers also help raise awareness of the importance of education. They also encourage families to send their children to school.
As well as increasing the enrolment of 2,200 orphans into school, it also improves the awareness of how vital education and learning is for the children to have a brighter future.
