Challenge

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking 153 out of 177 on the Human Poverty Index, and the poorest country in the Middle East. With an estimated population of 22 million, nearly 70% is less than 25 years old, and over a 1/3 is between 6 - 14 years old. While the government has made significant strides in increasing access to basic education for this age group, especially for girls, it is estimated that 1.8 million children are still out of school.

Solution

The program is withdrawing 4,100 children from the worst forms of child labor (WFCL) and is preventing 3,000 children from entering WFCL.

Long-Term Impact

CHF's holistic approach not only works with communities to withdraw children from child labor but also to address the root causes of child labor through collaborating on improved legislation and policies. Since 2004, we have helped 9000+ children.
