Education is a key that unlocks countless opportunities. It is a way out of poverty, a driving force for social change and an important aspect of personal development. Without a suitable education, children lack the foundations of growing up with the key social knowledge.
Yemen was once recognised as the centre of learning and knowledge however, today children go to school lacking the basic school essentials such as: books, pens, notebooks and bags.
Enlighten a child’s future in Yemen
Nearly 2 million children now out of school.
Nearly half a million children have dropped out of school since the 2015 escalation of conflict in Yemen, bringing the total number of out-of-school children to 2 million, according to UNICEF. Meanwhile, almost three-quarters of public school teachers have not been paid their salaries in over a year, putting the education of an additional 4.5 million children at grave risk.
More than 2,500 schools are out of use, with two-thirds damaged by attacks, 27% closed and 7% used for military purposes or as shelters for displaced people.
SABA Relief considers education is vital to eliminating poverty and focuses on ensuring that children have access to education. Every year we implement the school kits and uniforms to help the needy children in Yemen. Last year we helped more than 600 students by providing them with basic learning supplies such as school uniforms, bags and other kits.
Donate to help us provide school kits and uniforms for the needy children in Yemen.
The reasons for the project:
At SABA Relief, we care about children and realise they are the future generation. It is our duty to focus most of our attention on this segment of society in providing them with outstanding service.
We encourage learning in the community and support the need for an appropriate education. The project is specifically aimed at orphans and children of poor families by preparing them with the necessary equipment to ensure their day at school is productive. We help primary school children by supplying them with school bags containing school essentials such as notebooks, pens and other academic materials.
