Commitment to Action

You are One of Us: Supporting Education for Marginalized Communities

Commitment by

Small Business Majority Foundation, Universal Group

In 2015, Al Khair Foundation for Social Development (AKF) committed to promote school enrollment and support educational success for young Akhdam people in Yemen. AKF will do this through the implementation of a Conditional Cash Transfer program aimed at reaching 500 seventh-to-ninth graders and their families over a period of 36 months. AKF will promote the benefits of schooling by encouraging families to support their children’s education, and will also provide financial assistance with registration fees and school materials for families. AKF will launch media campaigns to spread awareness of the initiative - urging Yemenis to accept the Akhdam as fellow citizens and schoolmates, so that they too are afforded the opportunities that education provides for a productive and prosperous future.
