We cannot thank you enough for your outstanding support of Too Young to Wed’s work to empower girls and prevent child marriage in Yemen.
Schools are back in session in Yemen, and TYTW is working with our field partner Solidarios Sin Fronteras (SSF) to ensure that the students have access to clean water. While water shortage has always been an issue in Sana’a, Yemen, access to clean water is even more essential now that the country faces a pandemic. With SSF, we are continuing to implement urgent COVID-19 response and relief work in Yemen to include the construction and filling of fresh water tanks in displacement camps serving 3,500 people, along with the provision of hundreds of boxes filled with food and personal health and cleaning products. Yesterday, our project brought an additional new water tank to Bayt Baws.
Additionally, we invite all of you to save the date for our upcoming virtual holiday fest on Saturday, December 12 at 2:00pm EDT! Brought to you by Canon, our one-hour virtual event will feature remarks by actress and activist Julianne Nicholson and renowned Chilean novelist Isabel Allende. The event will also include exclusive program footage from the field (including from our recent photo workshop in India with acid attack survivors), and musical performances by our very own beneficiaries. We’ll also share information about our exciting print sale and host a conversation between founder Stephanie Sinclair and Kenyan documentary filmmaker / activist Jeremiah Kipainoi about the situation in the pastoralist communities, where girls are most vulnerable to child marriage and other harmful practices.
