KSRelief launches vocational programs for Yemeni women

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) has launched vocational training programs for female breadwinners in the Yemeni governorates of Aden and Lahij.
“As part of its mission to provide training and vocational rehabilitation and improve livelihoods in Yemen, KSRelief has launched several pilot project management courses for female heads of household in the Aden region,” a KSRelief spokesman said on Tuesday.
More than 50 trainees from Aden’s Attawahi and Khormaksar districts have learned how to market the products and services they provide, including sewing, hairdressing, baking, incense production, first aid provision and mobile phone maintenance.
KSRelief has also launched a series of courses for women in Al-Houta and Al-Musaymir districts in Lahij to train them in mobile phone maintenance, dairy production and first aid.
Sixty women have participated in these courses, which include information about how to market their skills to create income for themselves and their families, KSRelief said.
In October 2018, the center launched a vocational training program for women in Yemen’s Shabwah governorate.
The program trained 100 women over two months in four vocations: Hairdressing, sewing and embroidery, making pastries and sweets, and making perfume and incense.
