Imagine a child in Hays, Yemen, dreaming of a future filled with possibilities. Yet, the harsh reality of war has made access to quality education a distant dream. At Vision Hope International e.V. (VHI), we believe every child deserves the chance to learn and grow, regardless of their circumstances. 

Hays, like many regions in Yemen, has been deeply impacted by conflict, leaving its education system struggling. VHI is tackling these challenges head-on with a safe and nurturing educational project designed to: 

  • Revitalize learning spaces: We’re breathing new life into 33 classrooms, creating welcoming and functional environments for students to learn. 
  • Promote inclusivity and dignity: We’re constructing 19 separate bathrooms, ensuring everyone feels comfortable and respected in their learning environment. 
  • Ensure access to clean water: By installing 4 water tanks, we’re providing a reliable source of clean water for students and staff, promoting good health and hygiene. 
  • Empower young minds: We’re putting essential learning materials and school bags in the hands of 600 students, equipping them for success. 
  • Embrace sustainability: By installing solar energy systems in schools, we’re promoting a sustainable future and ensuring a consistent power supply for learning. 
  • Invest in the future: We’re training educators and social workers in psychosocial support, equipping them to nurture the well-being of every child. 
  • Empowering Educators and Parents: We believe in supporting not just students, but also the entire school community. We’re training 20 social workers, teachers, and administrators in psychosocial support, allowing them to better address the emotional and social needs of students. Additionally, we’re forming Fathers and Mothers Councils and holding awareness meetings and trainings, fostering collaboration and ensuring a strong foundation for their children’s educational journey. 

 

More than just a project, this is an investment in the future of Hays. By creating a safe, inclusive, and well-equipped learning environment, we’re empowering children to reach their full potential and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities. 

Together, let’s unlock the potential of every child in Hays and empower them to write their own success story. Join us on this journey! as we share updates on the project’s impact on our social media platforms.
