HUMAN ACCESS in the Marib Governorate carried out a number of activities as part of the “Safe Space for Women and Girls” protection and livelihood support project, funded by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), to help Yemeni women overcome the current crisis, preserve their rights, and enhance their participation in all development activities.

Given that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the fundamental right to play, the safe space in Wadi Marib arranged recreational activities for children. Additionally, in an attempt to qualify and prepare women to create economically viable, purposeful projects that meet needs and provide high-quality employment opportunities, a focus group discussion on market analysis was also carried out.

In Al-Matar area, the safe space hosted 18 female guests, providing them with psychological assistance on depression, its causes, and its treatments in order to help them become more confident and supportive of others. There were also three awareness sessions. The first was on time management skills, attended by 38 girls, and the second was on the importance of girls’ education as an established right and a major source of empowerment for women. At the third session, 18 women were introduced to space services and legal awareness of women’s rights in Al-Sharika camp for displaced people.

Four psychological support sessions were held at the safe space in the Al-Jufaina area. 32 women attended the first session, which focused on the path to psychological resilience, and 31 others attended the second, which dealt with common psychological disorders. The third session revolved around problem-solving skills and introduced safe space services and criteria for obtaining them in front of 25 visitors. The fourth session dealt with emotional control and its impact on children, in the presence of 8 women. Furthermore, three awareness sessions were organized, the first on the importance of obtaining personal identification and the second on the second on legislation protecting women’s rights. The second focused on the significance of women having a profession that allows them to overcome difficult living and economic conditions and live in dignity. The third session addressed community awareness, including domestic violence and its effects, and carried out a focus discussion about career choice and market analysis.
