In Yemen, conflict has been raging since 2014. This Christmas, rather than buying you something you don't want, I made a donation of £100 to pay for a children's peace-building programme in Eastern Yemen.
The programme is designed to promote stability by encouraging long-term thinking among Mahra’s next generation, both boys and girls. Children, aged 6 and over, will be engaged in critical thinking and problem solving aimed at peace building. The programme will be held in 28 schools, once a week for 3 hours, on a rolling basis. Children will be encouraged to address big issues, including how to rebuild their country once the conflict is over.
Your donation will support the costs of the peace programme in one school, for 2 months.
