Health Awareness Project
Launched on November 2016 and at around 50 Yemeni schools, Health Awareness Project was a two-month project on the importance of awareness and education in the prevention of diseases. The project was held at Lahj and Aden schools, aiming to raise public health awareness, especially in the context of the war on Yemen, where the country suffered from environmental and health disasters such as outbreaks of cholera, dengue, and malaria. 5 supervisors and 40 volunteers contributed to the success of the project through 6 school visits per week (divided into 3 days), while 23,742 students aged between 6 and 17 years old benefited from it.
One of LOYAC Yemen's most important projects that began in 2015, and still runs till this very day. It is an awareness project concerned with the dangers and serious consequences of child marriage in Yemen, especially in rural areas, which highlights the psychological, physical, and social problems of minors due to this kind of marriage. Death Brides aims to prevent the phenomenon of young girls' marriages in Yemen through the dissemination of education in the form of lectures and workshops, that of which includes the dissemination of enlightenment, awareness and peace, particularly in poor and rural Yemeni communities.
The lectures and workshops are held on a monthly basis (4 lectures in 4 different villages), meaning that 192 lectures and workshops were held ever since the project had started. As for beneficiaries: 20 women volunteered as staff for the workshops and lectures, while the number of attendees reached 12700 women (ages ranging from 11-45 years old).
