Promoting Girl’s Education in Yemen
Dubai Cares helped build partnerships between NGOs and education sector ministries to promote primary education, especially for girls, and ensure it is on the agenda of decision makers and the general public. Dubai Cares’ work covered various levels, including school-based interventions, policy dialogue, and advocacy for budget allocation discussions.
Improving Access to and Quality of Primary Education in Yemen
Save the Children
Dubai Cares worked with 25 rural schools in five districts in the governorates of Lahej and Abyan and 10 schools in deprived urban districts of the Aden governorate. As part of the program, Dubai Cares aimed to improve enrollment among vulnerable groups as well as to improve the quality of education, thus ensuring that the schools become truly inclusive to all children, especially girls. A plan was developed to ensure more female teachers at the schools. At least 20 satellite classrooms will be established in distant villages to encourage girls to come to school.
Dubai Cares supported communities affected with challenges around the development of education, including lack of adequate school facilities, resources, trained teachers and negative social attitudes towards girls education.
