KSrelief empowers Abyan, Yemen families caring for orphans through education

Abyan, Jan 19, 2024, The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) remains dedicated to implementing the "Empowerment through Education" activity, focusing on training and equipping families responsible for caring for orphans in the Abyan governorate, Yemen. This initiative is part of a broader school reintegration project for out-of-school girls in Yemen, carried out in collaboration with the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO).

Saleh Al-Dhaibani, the director of the KSrelief office in Aden, visited the training centers in Zinjibar on Wednesday, where he acknowledged the progress achieved by female trainees in sewing and the food industries. During the visit, he observed various products and crafts crafted by the beneficiaries as a result of the training. Al-Dhaibani encouraged the trainees to capitalize on the program, emphasizing that the acquired skills would contribute significantly to improving their future living conditions.

The reintegration project for out-of-school girls in Yemen seeks to empower families caring for orphans by providing a diverse set of life and professional skills. This includes the establishment of 14 educational and training courses covering areas such as sewing, embroidery, incense and perfume making, food industries, as well as technology and photography courses.

The overarching goal of the project is to enable families to achieve economic and social self-reliance, ultimately allowing girls to reintegrate into the education system and continue their studies. The project's impact extends to 280 trainees across various governorates, including Lahij, Abyan, Marib, Hadhramaut, and Socotra.

This initiative is a testament to the Kingdom's commitment to humanitarian and relief efforts, particularly in empowering families of girls who have discontinued their education. Through KSrelief, the Kingdom aims to enhance the living conditions of these families and contribute to the broader goal of fostering self-sufficiency and educational reintegration.
