Ebhar for Childhood and Creativity Foundation in cooperation with German Friedrich Ebert Stiftung organized a five-day workshop entitled “Children shape tomorrow” to teach drawing techniques. During the event, 30 talented children from different schools in Sanaa have participated in drawing competitions.
The students were offered simple topics about children rights and environment to be their drawing themes.
An exhibition is to be held at the Culture House following this workshop. The exhibition is expected to include all the paintings produced by the children during the workshop.
It is worthy mentioning that participant children will send a letter to all Yemeni political parties in which they would request to include children rights and their challenges within their electoral agenda. Dr. Waheeba Fare'a, Human Rights Minister, Mr. Ahmed al-Hamati, Information Ministry Deputy and a number of parents and interested in childhood attended the event.
