In Hodeidah governorate, Western Yemen, 500 students in two public schools received school backpacks on September 11th, 12th and 14th, 2021.
Our project to provide students in need with school backpacks aims to encourage them to continue studying.
Our distribution was funded by Mona Relief’s Patreon fundraising campaign with the support of Partners Relief and Development.
Seven years on, Yemeni children’s education has become one of the greatest casualties of Yemen’s devastating and ongoing conflict, according to a new report by UNICEF.
Just over 2 million school-age girls and boys are now out of school as poverty, conflict and lack of opportunities disrupt their education. This is double the number of out-of-school children in 2015 when the conflict started.
