Contexte
Rural Yemeni Schoolgirls are suffering too much. The official reports about students who drop out of school are so high. All the catastrophic situations of extreme poverty, hunger, civil war, huge unemployment, and the outbreak of COVID-19 and cholera have gathered to affect the enrollment and attendance rate of students in primary and secondary schools, particularly girls. Parents are not able to provide the necessary and nutritious food for their children. So, girls do not go to school.
