Yemen, Dhara


The most pressing issue that Yemen's education sector is facing, is the since 2015 ongoing conflict in the country. More specifically, the constant attacks on students, teachers, and school infrastructure have a devastating impact on the country's educational system. This in turn strongly limits the possibility for children to attain an education. 

Apart from this challenge, Yemen can also not provide enough civil servant salaries, decreasing the accessibility of education as well. 

Put in numbers, around 2 million children in Yemen are currently out of school as the humanitarian conflict situation continues to go on.


Nearly 80 percent of Burkina Faso’s population works in agriculture, making the country’s economy extremely dependent on this industry. Unfortunately, over the past 50+ years, temperatures in the region have continued to rise, contributing to severe droughts, desertification, and degraded soils.

Kalghin’s primary school, which is located in the heart of their community, has become a corner stone for meetings. It is additionally a place where increasing amounts of children are turning to receive a formal education. However, though this budding school responds to the community’s need for educational facilities, it has proven itself to be a challenge to keep up. With a roof made of hay and walls made of strewn-together materials such as woven mats and plastic sheets, this shelter has been unable to protect the student population from the environment. During the rainy season, the roofing and wooden supports often become soaked beyond use. During the dry season, the wind removes different layers of roofing or the make-shift walls. With the constantly changing climate, the classrooms often crumble under the weather, leaving the parents liable to repair any damages so learning can continue. For some parents, these issues have turned their sense of joy, which came from the accessibility of formal education, towards a sentiment of guilt for sending their children somewhere where they could possibly be injured, just trying to receive an education.


In the Beit Al-Hajri area, the residents built four classrooms in the schoolyard in order to expand the school and increase the capacity, as the classrooms are overcrowded with students, but the ceiling of classrooms was covered with remnants of old wood. The students sit on the floor of dirty classrooms in the absence of adequate lighting and ventilation.

Restoration and renovation of these improvised classrooms would require a great deal of effort and expenses and ultimately would not meet the purpose that school classrooms are supposed to meet. Therefore, the new construction of additional classrooms and bathrooms, constructed according to the design of the main building, is the most appropriate solution. The new construction definitely helps preserve the psychological health and physical safety of all students, educational staff, and employees.
