Help Akram get educated to secure a job with a NGO

Raised Remaining


I am from Yemen, a very under developed country. Yemen went through a revolution which resulted in a high rate of unemployment and my father lost his job, and then I too lost the only job I was able to get - holding stones and cement building blocks for hours in order to support the basic needs of the family. I want to be an independent and effective person. Getting a degree will enable me to get a job and make a change in my life and my country.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Yemen is facing high unemployment. There are nine members in my family including my parents and brothers and sisters. My father cannot work which leaves only me as the eldest to support the family's education and food. The job market is very hard. Only with education do I have a chance to get a job. Without it the family and I are left without anything to do to survive or a future.

How will this project solve this problem?

I will be able to develop my career in the NGO I am volunteering for the last three years already - and get a permanent job. I believe in the work of a NGO because they aim at serving the society first which is also my ultimate aim. Taking this degree will end my suffering with employment and gives me the chance to be a productive individual. I want to serve my community and be a model for youth.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the job I will get from having a degree I will help my sisters and brothers to continue their education. Only if I have a job, will I be able to guarantee that nine people in my family will achieve their goals with my help and support. Then I want to help my community a lot.
