AWTAD Anti-Corruption Organization launched the second batch of the project, implementing the first and second phases (selection of trainees, training program) and postponing the third and fourth phases (home production, promotion and marketing of products) until support and funding are provided The start of a delay of more than three months due to the outbreak of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Yemen The project team developed several training options to choose the best and most appropriate household chores for poor displaced families. The organization was planning to train 20 displaced women (as was done in the first batch), but the lack of funding and donations obtained by the project forced the organization to reduce the number to only 10 displaced women, and despite the financial difficulties faced by the organization due to the war in Yemen and the spread of the Corona pandemic, but the organization contributed by providing 40% Funding for this training course The organization also coordinated with some local organizations to implement the training course, and these organizations are: 1- Jana Al-Janatayn Foundation for Women and Childhood Development: which provided training rooms in its headquarters in the capital, Sana’a 2 Family Foundation for Development: which contributed to the logistics services 3- Wajh Al-Hayat Foundation (and it previously participated with us in the implementation of the first batch) and it has selected the trainees from among the displaced women, according to the specific conditions of the project, conducting interviews with them and providing logistical services While AWTAD provided funding, program management, supervision and follow-up The female trainers, all the raw materials and tools necessary for the training phase, were provided with breakfast meals for the displaced trainees, and a transportation allowance was paid in cash. An intensive six-day training course was held, from Saturday, July 10 to Thursday, July 15, with a total number of 18 training hours, with daily follow-up and evaluation. There were wonderful outcomes of the training course, the most important of which were: 1- The trainees gained good information and experience in recycling waste and used things, which will provide them with a new source of income. 2- Producing a wonderful group of furniture and accessories that will be promoted for sale in the future for the benefit of the trainees 2- Changing the culture of the trainees towards used objects and waste, as the societal culture in the local environment in Yemen looks at work in the field of waste with a negative view, and the majority of the community members believe that the waste and used objects should be disposed of, but this training course changed the culture of the trainees, and they became convinced That they can turn waste and used things into useful and wonderful things 3- Establishing friendships and intimate relations between the displaced women participating in the training course, and what will contribute in the future to the establishment of joint economic projects 4- Strengthening partnerships and collaborative programs between AWTAD and local organizations participating in the program We hope to be able to complete this batch by training another 10 displaced women, purchasing and distributing raw materials and tools for home production for all 20 trainees and setting up a marketing program to promote the products. To achieve this the project needs more funding, and, I hope the supporters will respond and make donations for the project

During the last quarter of last year 2020, the project received donations of only $ 825, but a part of it was deducted by foreign banks in exchange for bank transfer commissions of $ 175, in addition to a financial grant to help the organization face the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic of $ 1000.

The second batch of the project was supposed to be implemented in the year 2020, but the organization had to postpone it to 2021 due to the scarcity of donations on the one hand and the quarantine to confront the Corona virus on the other hand.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting losses, the organization was forced to disburse financial donations made to the project in the year 2020 to help displaced women who graduated from the first batch (for more information, review the previous report), leaving only 7850 Yemeni riyals ($ 13.08), which were deposited into the organization's account. In the bank in Yemeni riyals.

The project team then followed up on the displaced women who had graduated from the first batch and evaluated the results

During January 2021, the project team began preparing for the implementation of the second batch of the project, through the following steps:

1- Selection of the names of the displaced women who will participate in the second batch: The organization had prepared a list of names and information of 300 displaced persons - according to the project plan - and 20 of them were previously selected in the first batch, but the events and changes that occur in Yemen due to the war and health and economic crises lead to the instability of many The displaced people are in the areas of their displacement, and therefore it was necessary to review the previous database, to select the participants who are settled in the capital, Sana'a (according to the project plan) and from poor families who do not have men who are able to work, and thirty displaced women have been selected, twenty of whom will be approved. They were contacted, and dates were set for the interview and the field trip to the sites of their displacement during the month of February

2- The project team studied the types of handicrafts that will be selected for the training and production program for the second batch, and the project team agreed to change the types of handicrafts that were previously trained in the first batch, which were:

- Manufacture of women's bags and accessories: where the success rate was very weak and did not exceed 30%, for several reasons, the most important of which is flooding the local market with cheap ready-made products imported from China, and the inability of the products of the displaced women to compete with them, and other reasons, including the lack of suitable sewing machines for the majority of the displaced

The manufacture of perfumes, incense and cosmetics: Although the first batch graduates achieved 70% success, the working and producing families of this type of handicraft increased their number greatly during the past two years as a result of similar programs implemented by other organizations and associations, after the success of our program

- With the events of the year 2020 resulting from the Corona list, the urgent need for sterilization materials, hygiene, medical masks and simple sanitary supplies appeared, and therefore the team decided to choose a training program for household handicrafts for this type of products, as one of the training programs for the second batch.

- The team is studying another proposal, which is optional, by receiving proposals from the displaced during the conduct of personal interviews, according to their personal desires and hobbies, so that the most desired proposal among the participants is chosen, to be part of the training programs for the second batch.

The success of the organization in implementing the second batch (or more than one batch) during the year 2021 is related to the size of the donations that the project will receive during the year 2021, and the organization directs a distress call to the donors and donors to provide support for the project, and help us save hundreds of displaced and poor families in Yemen from poverty and hunger. And diseases.

The organization is also searching for other sources of funding, whether local or external. In the first step, the organization submitted a proposal to the "Community Welfare Guarantee Grants - A Virtual Peace Program", which was announced last January at the link https://sites.google.com/site/nextworldnowcommunity/home

We are awaiting a response to the proposal, and the organization will try to search for other sources in the coming months

GlobalGiving 1000265. 1190 (2020) -19. 300 (500). . . 70. 30. 280. 290 2400.

 

Last August, the organization received a financial grant from GlobalGiving to confront the Corona pandemic in the amount of $ 1,000, in addition to donations for the project in the amount of $ 265, and the amount was transferred to our account in the bank in Yemen, and an amount of $ 1190 reached us

 

The organization decided to use half of the grant allocated to confront Corona, to pay the rents of the organization's headquarters that are delayed for six months (from April to September 2020) due to the Corona pandemic, because the organization's headquarters are located in front of the emergency gate of the Kuwait Hospital in Sana'a, which is the largest treatment center for Covid-19 in Yemen. Full payment of late rentals of 300,000 Yemeni riyals (equivalent to $ 500)

 

The rest of the money transfer amount was decided by the organization to distribute it to the twenty displaced women who were trained and qualified in the first batch, as their projects were threatened with bankruptcy due to the pandemic.

 

As a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the virus, the aid was sent to the displaced women through exchange companies, they were contacted and the financial transfer information was collected, the amount was withdrawn from the bank in the name of the project's financial officer, Mrs. Amat al-Rahim Amiruddin Abdullah, and she was assigned to send remittances to the displaced, and a disclosure facility. Send information from the exchange company

 

A month after the transfer of financial aid to the displaced, they were contacted to verify the results, and the two closest displaced people were visited to see their home project, and their new products were photographed and attached to the report

 

The results were very good for projects in the manufacture of perfumes, incense and cosmetics, with a success rate of more than 70%.

 

As for the projects to manufacture women's bags and accessories, they were weak, and the success rate did not exceed 30%, and the main reason was the lack of leather sewing machines, because displaced women use sewing shops to complete some products, and many sewing shops are still closed due to the pandemic.

 

We are trying to find solutions for them in the next stage

 

We still have a lot, according to the project plan, we still have 280 displaced families that need to be rehabilitated and financed

 

We recently received donations worth $ 290, which is sufficient for the training phase of ten displaced women only, but we need more than $ 2,400 for the production and marketing stages.

 

We hope the project will receive more donations

Women displaced under the Corona crisis
A team from the project contacted some of the displaced women who were trained and supported by the project, to see their conditions, and their home projects to produce perfumes, incense, women's bags, accessories, etc.
In Yemen, the outbreak of the Corona virus began recently last May, and due to the bad conditions that Yemen is experiencing as a result of the war and the conflict that has been going on for six years, the health conditions are very poor, which was reflected negatively on the economic and social conditions
The team contacted some of the trainees, who complain that a large part of their projects were suspended during this month due to the precautionary measures and the quarantine to confront the Corona virus.
Trainee Ubaida sold her last product last May, and sent us some pictures of it through the WhatsApp program, but she stopped production this month, and she adheres to the home quarantine.
Obaida said that she had achieved good success during the past months, and her own project provided her with a source of income for her family, and she was selling all of her products of perfumes and incense, but she stopped now and lived in bad conditions
As for the displaced "Reham", the team contacted her on the mobile, because she returned to her previous village in Al-Hodeidah Governorate two months ago, and she left the capital, Sanaa, due to the Corona virus. Reham was a participant in the marketing and promotional program for the products of the displaced women, which the project established in November and December 2019, and continued After him producing incense, perfumes and cosmetics, Reham said that she was facing difficulties in marketing her products in Sanaa, and that her latest products took her with her to her village in Hodeidah to sell them there.
Trainee Azhar visited the team in Sana'a, Azhar was working in a shop that sells women's accessories in one of the major malls in Sanaa, and was displaying her products from household bags and accessories in that store, but the authorities in Sanaa issued a decision to close the commercial malls in Sanaa since the end of last May (As part of the precautionary measures to confront Corona), therefore, it stopped production and sale, and suffers from very poor conditions
Through the meetings and contacts that the team held with the trainees, their home projects are threatened with bankruptcy and stopping permanently. Many of the displaced who were trained and supported spent a large part of the product sales during this month, and they were unable to purchase new raw materials and manufacture new products due to the Corona crisis, and they needed Necessary to provide additional support, so that they can return to production and marketing after the end of the Corona crisis
We invite supporters and donors to respond to the displaced women and provide support and funding to them in this dangerous stage and the difficult conditions faced by the displaced women in Yemen.

Eight weeks is the fourth stage (marketing and promoting the products of displaced families). The organization participated in the weekly market for productive families in Sana'a during the period from November 2019 to January 2020 Every Thursday, the organization hired a commercial pavilion at the exhibition, and female interns from the displaced participated in displaying products that were made in their homes, women bags, perfumes, incense, cosmetics and accessories, all were good, sales were encouraging, and the marketing exhibition visited many senior Officials and government officials admired the products of the displaced women. One of the ministers bought samples of most of the products made by the displaced women. The organization supervised marketing, and encouraged female trainees to purchase new raw materials so that production could continue, and the small projects supported by the project would be developed. We still have 280 displaced families in need of training and support, but the project did not receive new donations in the last campaign that was held last December, and the organization is trying to continue to search for new support and funding, and the project was registered in the 2020 campaign for the girls ’funding campaign, which was accepted, The campaign will start on March 6 and last for a week. We hope that the project will receive new funding so that it can train, rehabilitate and support more displaced women
