Project Uplift

Employment = opportunities, and that’s exactly what Project Uplift strives to achieve. Established with the vision of making individuals and families self-sufficient, Project Uplift empowers those who have suffered the brunt of armed conflict. 

Living in a country devastated by war isn’t easy. Jobs are few and far between, and those that can find work are often not being paid their fair share, leaving them unable to pay for basic necessities like food and shelter. Without jobs, people in Yemen are left with no alternative but to rely on humanitarian aid.

Uplifting Yemen’s Sheroes

Of the 4.5 million people left homeless in Yemen, 80% are women and children, with over a quarter of displaced Yemeni households headed by women. Meanwhile, only 6% of women in Yemen are employed, meaning millions of Yemeni women and children are going without a stable income. Basic necessities, such as food, medicine and educational supplies are therefore going unmet. 

Uplifting Yemen’s Sheroes (the women who heroically head their households) empowers Yemeni women by giving them the tools that they need to start their own local businesses. By giving them incoming-generating tools such as sewing machines and equipment, or fronting the cost of rent for a convenience store, they are able to begin their own enterprises and provide for them and their families. Setting up future generations for success.

Eman's Story of Strength and Hope

Sheroes like Eman, a mother of six children, three of which have tragically passed away. Iman’s children and husband all suffer from debilitating illness, meaning she’s the only one in her family able to work.

Join us in celebrating Yemen’s unsung Batalas this Mother’s Day. All of the money raised from our Uplifting Yemen’s Sheroes campaign will empower women like Eman by giving her the income-generating tools needed to make her own living, to build a better tomorrow for her and her family. 

Creating Opportunities

As a result of the civil war in Yemen, many families have lost their breadwinners. Unemployment and the failure of the state to pay civil servants, teachers, and healthcare workers have resulted in a major impact on the livelihood of citizens. 

But people in Yemen want to return to work and be independent. Project Uplift provides hope and initial support people need to go from being beneficiaries to once again becoming self-sufficient, breaking the cycle of poverty. By giving them a fresh start, we’re fronting the costs of fundamentals such as rent and home renovation support, healthcare and education, as well as funding initial business start-ups to ensure beneficiaries can earn a living.

Going Beyond

At HRD, we stress the importance of nurturing the future of Yemen, which is why orphans are sometimes selected as beneficiaries, alongside representatives of children with disabilities. We also focus on child-headed households attaining a full education. 

We understand the need to know about the individual needs of beneficiaries. As a result, the HRD project team in Yemen conducts home visits to assess the families’ social, physical, mental, educational, and economic situation. This allows us to focus on tailored approaches and facilitate long-term and sustainable change that will be specific to the individual or family.
