Various activities to enhance women's resilience and improve livelihoods
HUMAN ACCESS in Shabwa and Marib governorates conducted a wide range of activities within the protection and livelihood support project, “Safe Space for Women and Girls,” funded by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to help the most needy families become self-reliant, inform women of their rights, and develop their abilities to acquire craft skills to improve livelihoods.
During the safe space's regular meeting in Shabwa, the protection network discussed the 16-day activism campaign to confront gender-based violence that will begin at the end of the month.
In addition, the meeting stressed the need for community efforts to protect women and girls from violence, since violence impedes women's participation in public life.
