“Hands of Hope” initiative and “Hayat” initiative have launched a project to restore Rawdah Al-Abdali Palace at Nasser College of Agricultural Sciences in Al-Houta, Lahj Governorate. The project is called “Athar for the Revival of Al-Hajji Heritage”, supervised by AMIDEAST and funded by the “Yemen Affairs Unit” at the US State Department.
The first phase of the project, lasting four months, will focus on the external restoration of Al-Rawdah Palace. The fountain will also be renovated during this phase, and a miniature museum will be established in one of the palace rooms.  Additionally, a training workshop will be held to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the region’s heritage as a reflection of its historical depth and a civilized, aesthetic facade. During the second phase of the project, the interior of Al-Rawdah Palace will be restored.
 The aim of the project is to revive the heritage of the Al-Houta District and Lahj Governorate, preserving it from extinction and recovering it from the destruction of the palaces of Al-Abdali Sultanate which had not been protected until now. Officials including Mr. Sami Al-Jabali, Director General of the Al-Houta District, Mr. Mahmoud Awad, Director-General of the Tourism Office, and Mr. Ahmed Saleh, Director-General of the Culture Office in Lahj, have praised the initiative and the project organizers for their efforts.
The inauguration was attended by Eng. Fathi Al-Saou, Director General of the Environment Public Authority office in Hajj, Dr. Fatima Al-Faqih, Director of Al-Nasser College of Agricultural Sciences, representatives of AMIDEAST Institute, the initiative’s official, Mr. Imad, and Ms. Haneen Mohsen Ali, official of “Hands of Hope” and “Al-Hayat” initiatives respectively. The event was also attended by professors from Al-Nasser College for Agricultural Sciences and other members of the heritage community.
