Since the conflict started in Yemen, attacking schools children, teachers and education infrastructure had a devastating impact on the country’s education system – and on the chances of millions of children to access learning.
Due to conflict and the closure of schools, more than 500,000 children were unable to resume their education in the past school year, bringing the total of out-of-school children in Yemen to over 2 million based on UNICEF statement. Also the children don’t have the abilities for basic school needs..
HRT calls the donors to support children for (Back-to-School Programme) to provide children with a learning opportunity. This includes the renovation damaged schools and provision of school furniture, stationery and school bags. Furthermore, Teachers need training on psychosocial support to help students cope with the horrors of the conflict.
Last month, through campaigns and surveys in some districts in Amanat Al Asemah; HRT found out a lot of our targeted beneficiaries are suffering from the same problem, which was lake of basic needs to be a student.
