04 December 2023

Sana’a, 04 December 2023 – Sheikh Abdullah Al Nouri Charity Society has provided a generous funding to UNICEF in Yemen to help 3,500 conflict-affected children along with 100 teachers and educational staff in the country.

The contribution worth US$ 422,000 will enable UNICEF to provide access to basic formal and non-formal education support to 3,500 children with limited or no education opportunities in the governorates of Shabwah and Hadhramaut, where education needs remain high.

Over the next twelve months, UNICEF will carry out rehabilitation of three primary schools and ensure the availability of latrines, hand washing and safe water drinking facilities to encourage children, particularly girls to remain in school.

Essential education supplies, including school bag kits and stationery items, will be provided to 1,500 children to lessen the economic and financial burden on families and encourage these 1,500 students from poor families to attend school. To ensure access to quality education, the capacity of 100 teachers and facilitators will be strengthened to deliver formal and non-formal basic education curriculum using child-centered pedagogies and offer basic psychosocial support.
