The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has funded a “Safe Space for Women and Girls” project in Shabwa and Marib governorates, implemented by Humanitarian Access. The project aims to raise awareness among Yemeni women of the issues they face and provide protection and livelihood support services to the most needy and vulnerable children.

An Open Day was recently organized by Safe Space for children in the child-friendly Ataq City in Shabwa. The event brought together a diverse range of recreational and educational activities, with many children and their mothers in attendance. The program focused on raising awareness about child development, promoting positive social interactions, and addressing negative behavior.

In Almojama’a and Jofainah Area in Marib, Safe Space organized two awareness sessions, one on the importance of mental health as a basis for physical and mental well-being. The session was attended by 24 women and girls. The second session was attended by 26 women and aimed at addressing gender-based violence and promoting the importance of protecting women from it. The session also focused on providing psychological support to attendees to help them cope with life stressors. Additionally, the session provided personal hygiene awareness, and covered ways to prevent common diseases and addressed obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The attendees were also encouraged to prioritize women’s education.
