Ongoing efforts to encourage Yemeni women's access to resources
HUMAN ACCESS implemented several activities in Marib Governorate as part of its "Safe Space for Women and Girls" protection and livelihood support project in partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) to encourage Yemeni women’s access to resources and markets for the benefit of the most vulnerable and needy families.
30 women were awarded economic empowerment grants in Al-Mujamma, Al-Jufaina, Al-Matar areas, for dressmaking and hairdressing, after having been professionally trained and provided with financial and marketing skills.
As part of the empowerment grants, recipients were required to practice their profession and launch their own ventures in order to become economically viable ventures and have better opportunities to secure livelihoods and achieve self-reliance.
Al-Jufaina safe space celebrated the graduation of 24 women from two vocational training courses in sewing, tailoring, and leather bag making.
During the celebration, trainees' products were displayed, demonstrating their great benefit from vocational qualifications and their ability to innovate, excel, and compete in the labor market, thus securing a source of livelihood for them and their families under challenging circumstances.
The space also conducted psychological support on self-actualization with the participation of 22 women to enhance women's steadfastness.
A community awareness session was also held on cyber-extortion crimes, in the presence of 22 women, to raise community awareness about the dangers of this form of gender-based violence and to protect women and girls from this widespread phenomenon in today’s world.
