Empowering children to get their basic education right is one of the main work scopes that SEYAJ is focused on as this right is regarded as one of the most important children rights after the right to life.
SEYAJ has developed its experience during the period 2008-2015 to the program of “Education is Protection” which was included in its strategy (2016-2020) to empower all the Yemeni children to get their education rights and create friendly and protective learning environment for child.
SEYAJ is working during “post-war period” on strengthening the policies, curricula, enforcement of legislation, modifying societal beliefs and government orientations toward focusing on education as an essential force to the development, security, well-being and stability.
The program of “Education is Protection” is working on integrating between education and protection within the school and community surrounding the child, through providing basic items for the child such as school bag, school uniforms and stationery. It also works on implementing awareness campaigns and mobilizing community towards educating their children and creating direct protection mechanisms for students inside the school through implementing cultural and artistic activities such as theater, painting and morning PE to inculcate values of goodness and tolerance; as well as training of students and teachers on the monitoring and reporting on phenomena of violence and direct problems on the students from each other or from the teachers themselves.
