HUMAN ACCESS in Marib Governorate handed over economic empowerment toolkits to 115 women from the displaced and the host community in four vocations that they trained in during the first half of this year. These include sewing, embroidery, making sweets and pastries, making perfumes, incense, hairdressers and beauticians, as part of the protection and livelihood support project “Safe Space for Women and Girls” financed by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

At the handover ceremony, the director general of the Social Affairs and Labor office in Marib, Abdulhakim Al-Qaisi, and the deputy director of the Executive Unit for the Management of Displaced Persons Camps (ExU), Khaled Al-Shijni, praised the protection and livelihood support project, which contributes to rehabilitating women from the most vulnerable groups and empowering them economically by granting them professional toolkits after qualifying them to start their small projects and improve their income and livelihood for themselves and their families in light of the difficult economic conditions in Yemen.
