BOOKS AND FURNITURE FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN
Since March 2015, 1,000 schools have been damaged or closed. The units which supply and provide for all school books in the country, the Sana’a School Production Unit and Aden Central Furniture Manufacturing Unit, are currently closed.Consequently, school children are without needed books, and schools are without furniture such as tables and chairs. These, compounded with the trauma of the war, are severely restraining rights of Yemeni children to access education.
The project will provide books for school children and fix damaged school furniture in 20 schools throughout Ibb. It will restart a press and furniture new manufacturing unit in Ibb; (ii) procure the necessary tools, equipment, and material for book publishing and furniture maintenance. An estimated 30 unemployed youth will be employed for the duration of the project and improve their skills and employability.
