Nosim shows her mother, Nolmaai, her school exercises. 

Nolmaai has been going to adult literacy classes for two months. She says: “My children are at school, and that’s what is taking me into class. I see where the teacher has marked ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in Nosim’s exercise books, and I feel happy and proud when I see her answers marked ‘right’! Now I want to understand, so I can see what Nosim is answering.’

This is Naziah, age 11, outside her school in Hays, Yemen. Hays is an extremely poor area where the population lives on an average of $1 per day, and 50% of the population have no access to education. We’re helping to rehabilitate this school which works in 2 shifts to give the maximum number of children schooling.
