Millions of Yemeni children deprived of education

Two million children are out of school, including half a million who have dropped out of school since the houthis started the war in Yemen, while the education of another 3.7 million children is at stake, the UN agency said in a statement.

“With the start of the new school year amid ongoing violence in Yemen, 2 million children are out of school, including nearly half a million who have dropped out of school since the escalation of the conflict in March 2015,”

“The education of another 3.7 million children is at stake, where teachers’ salaries have not been paid for more than two years,” the statement said.

“Conflict, delayed development and poverty have deprived millions of children in Yemen of their right to education and their hope for a better future,” said UNICEF Representative in Yemen Sara BesloNiyanti.

“Violence, displacement and attacks on schools prevent many children from reaching school.”

“Thirty years after the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, it is unacceptable that education and other fundamental rights of the child are out of reach for children in Yemen, all because of man-made factors,” she said.

“As teachers’ salaries have not been paid for more than two years, the quality of education is also at stake.”

“The current conflict in Yemen has escalated for more than four years and has devastated the country’s already fragile education system. One in five schools in Yemen can no longer be used as a direct result of the conflict.”

The organization stressed the cessation of attacks on educational facilities to protect children and teachers.

She also stressed that education authorities across Yemen should work together and find an immediate solution to provide salaries to all teachers and education personnel so that children can continue their education.
