UNICEF has implemented a range of initiatives to create a safe and nurturing environment in Amran City. To protect children from various forms of harm, these initiatives were created to target children who experience child labor, children who have been separated from their families, and children who have dropped out of school, regardless of whether they are IDPs or from the host community.

“The activities undertaken within the Case Management and Psychosocial support project involve various activities. Among them are the establishment of children-friendly spaces designed to protect and facilitate children’s participation in a diverse range of psychosocial support activities, including recreational, art, sport, counseling, vulnerability identification, and referral activities,” said Faris Saleh Al-Qusaili, the Child Protection Project Coordinator and an employee at the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in Amran.

7,500 children received psychosocial support by participating in different activities in the friendly space supported by this program at the Community Center in Amran City.

“The psychosocial support activities aim to identify cases of children suffering from trauma and cumulative psychological stress or disorder and to help them overcome it,” said Weam Omer Saeed Al-Absi, a facilitator at the children-friendly space in Amran City.

“In addition, there are activities that aim to economically empower adolescent girls and women through vocational training in sewing, accessory making, and the production of perfumes,” added Al-Qusaili.

As part of the psychological support program, vocational training was provided to women living at Al-Tarbeeah IDP camp to help them earn an income for themselves and provide for their children and families.

The training targeted IDPs, widows, and mothers, who are the sole providers for their children and families. The products they learned to make during the training sessions are highly demanded in the local market, which makes it easier for these women to sell. One of the main objectives of the training is to support women in bearing the costs of education for their children.

Supported by UNICEF and funded by the Swedish International Development Agency, the Family Protective Centre in Amran, Yemen, offers integrated protection and other complimentary services to children and women in Al-Tarbeeah IDP camp. This center offers a beacon of light amid the challenging environment of IDPs, offering essential services that safeguard their rights and well-being.
