KSRelief Starts Vocational Programs for Yemeni Women
The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has initiated vocational training programs for female wage earners in the Yemeni governorates of Aden and Lahij.
A KSRelief spokesman on Tuesday stated that as a part of its mission to offer training and vocational restoration and for improving the mode of living in Yemen, KSRelief has started several pilot program management courses for the female heads of household living in the Aden region.
Over 50 trainees from Aden’s Attawahi and Khormaksar districts have been trained on how to market the products and services they are offering, which includes sewing, hairdressing, baking, incense production, first aid provision and mobile phone maintenance.
KSRelief has also started an array of courses for women in Al-Houta and Al-Musaymir districts in Lahij to coach them in mobile phone maintenance, dairy production and first aid.
Sixty women have already taken part in these courses, which include information about how to market their expertise to generate income for themselves and also for their families, according to KSRelief.
In October 2018, the center initiated a vocational training program for women in Yemen’s Shabwah governorate. The program coached 100 women over two months in four vocations: hairdressing, making pastries and sweets, sewing and embroidery, and making perfume and incense.
