We did it! Our first crowd funding campaign of #empowering 500 vulnerable women in Yemen facing COVID-19 project with our partners globalgiving succeeded! We didn’t reach our target of collecting 250K yet, but decided to start the awareness campaign with the amount of funds we received from everyone around the world and it was a motivation to us and social responsibility.

All since we submitted our first report, we prepared and signed a service contract for 2 female coaches & social workers (females trainer) for 5 working days and each one of them received 75$ per day which makes them earn a total of 375$/each one to provide an awareness training for vulnerable young women on how to prevent their selves from domestic and GBV violence.

Before starting the awareness training the coaches & social workers' have been trained for one day by 2 professional health trainers who received 50$/each one. The training was on COVID-19 prevention methods and made the coaches & social workers knowledgeable and able to provide the training complying with WHO instruction correctly. Those women were extremely excited to take part in spreading awareness of this dreadful disease that took the lives of so many people so far. As well as furnishing the girls with newest self-leadership skills and approaches and how to prevent their self from domestic and GBV violence.

We needed to have cooperation from the orphan house that these girls and women are staying in to facilitate the process of them reaching to as many benefits as possible and to make sure they fill in the progress report each working day. Therefore, we prepared and signed contracts for 2 field coordinators with 100$ fees per person. The process went smoothly during all training steps from preparation to final session of training and distribution of certificates. We didn’t want to only spread awareness through these social workers and coaches, we wanted to also try and make it a little better in terms of stimulate this little ladies to be supporters in their dorms and support the younger girls. So we provide them with the training curriculum printed to be used as self-guideline during their daily life. We tried to think of creative ways to spread awareness all throughout their community, schools and dorms places so we designed (By Concern Organization internal designers team) catchy and simple designs that present ways of how to be yourself manger and how to successful and empowered women and how to prevented from prospective domestic and GBV violence. moreover ,We had A3 posters and a brochure with full details on how to be prevented methods too. We printed 500 posters and 500 brochures and spread them around. After that, five days of awareness campaign were held for 20 young women

Meet a few women of The project empowering 500 vulnerable women in Yemen. A COVID-19 relief and recovery program, made possible by Concern Organization for women & Children (CWC) in partnership with GlobalGiving.

They help kids get safer & happier by supporting their mothers through coaching women through challenges, financial funds and health support. These women are the hearts and souls of their communities. COVID-19 threatens their livelihoods and the businesses they’ve built from the ground up. But thanks to a generous gift from donors , these incredible women are better positioned to weather the pandemic—not only to keep their businesses afloat, but to help them thrive.

The project is an initiative of Concern Organization, who teamed up with GlobalGiving to support female entrepreneurs in the wake of COVID-19.

With a little help from Concern Organization , these women are “making magic happen,

The first 10 women recipients of the fund were announced on July 14, Each women received a $5,000 grant, beside an all-access pass to an integrated training of self-improvement and business management.

The $5,000 is significant—it’s the same amount a symbol of starting small and dreaming big. From now through September 2021, Concern Organization will in total grant 100 women-owned and led organizations $5,000 each to help them weather the hard economic situation resulted of pandemic.(upon to fund availability)

Here’s how the grant will make a difference for their business: “Without the opportunities we provide to break the negative cycle, women remain trapped in a life they may not have chosen… But the impact of your funding will allow today to continue addressing women’s health, education, and economic empowerment. Investing in women and a program improving income generating activities, yields a large return on investment.

Karima, keep her 10 female worker and their families economically safe during COVID-19 by keeping her business going on during the pandemic .She is making an exception in a predominantly-male industry. Here’s how the grant will make a difference for her business: “We are a small farm owned by women. The grant will help us continue to provide harvest and that in turn requires tens of women to work on farming the land and harvest collect , We are working to extend the approach of organic products and intending to spread this idea among the youth community

Thanks to the training we received from Concern, we are now able to communicate with market needs and to facilitate a project well done. My dream is to keep empowering women in our field and show what we are capable of.”
