UNDP Yemen: Samia: An Empowered and Resilient Rural Yemeni Woman
06 November 2023
In the heart of #yemen , in #lahj Governorate's Beer Jaber Village, Samia, a 47-year-old woman, is a beacon of hope and resilience for rural women striving to build a better life for themselves and their families. Close to International Day of Rural Women, we celebrate Samia's journey to success with assistance from the ERRY Joint Programme, with the United Nations Development Programme’s support with solar panel installation and FAO's involvement in providing Samia with dairy equipment and training on dairy production and livestock rearing. Thanks to generous funding from the European Union and the Government of Sweden, Samia's story reflects not only her personal resilience but also the transformative power of collaboration and support in empowering rural women to build better lives for themselves and their communities.
