Abdo Salam finally enjoys his time in school

Thursday 23 January 2014

Thirteen year-old AbdoSalam Fasial was displaced from his home in Harf Sofian district in northern Amran. He fled with his family two years ago and is now a student in Al-Foze school in southern Amran governorate in Yemen. He never thought that school would be an interesting place for him to go. Abdo Salam and his family and many people who had been displaced from their homes never thought education was an important issue for them within the emergency situation they live in. However, after he joined the school with many students from the host community and other people who had been displaced, he realized the profound difference that education would make in his life.

“Save the Children’s Education Programs targeted 34 schools in 3 governorates to improve the learning environment for the students.”

Abdo Salam’s school was supported by Save the Children under the DIFD funded Emergency Education Program which targeted 16 schools in Sa’ada, 12 schools in Amran governorates, and six schools in Haradh (Hajjah governorate). “I like my school more than the previous one I was in before I fled. I come to school very early

in the morning to enjoy my time in school and learn new things. There are many friends who study in other schools who want to join mine as I keep telling them about the interesting things in my school, especially the new games that are available here,” Abdo Salam happily offered.
