Building capabilities and developing youth skills [Archives:2007/1069/Last Page]
During summer months, children awake early in the morning and make their way to school, not for the usual study session, but for recreation and the learning of new skills. This year, nearly 250,000 youth enrolled in 700 youth summer camps opened throughout Yemen.
The ministries of education, youth and sports, religious endowment and Islamic affairs, cultural and technical education and vocational training organized creative and enlightening programs to keep Yemeni youth occupied during their summer vacation. The motto this year: Together for Enhancing National Identity, Building Capabilities and Developing Youth Skills.
Such summer camps aim to strengthen the spirit of belonging and national awareness and promote the values of integration and unity among the youth of Yemen. “We start the activities of the center with morning assembly, presenting lectures which increase awareness for young men and women against deviant ideas,\” Khalid Joubari
