How can we improve Yemen when most of the population is chewing qat and is too lazy with no proper education and means of scientific and technology development? How can Yemenis be better then others while spending more money on qat than anything else?
If we Yemenis spend as much money on education rather than qat, or use those hours we spend consuming qat on hard work or education, then progress will be inevitable.
If all Yemenis help each other instead of feeling envy towards each other, then we can climb to the top easily.
We can only build a better Yemen if we build a strong base first. The base is enhancing education and science and abandoning qat and laziness.
