Country fact sheet - Commendable practices for child rights in Yemen

The “Manara Network: A civil society for Child’s Rights” was designed and implemented by Save the Children Sweden (SCS) in collaboration with the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR), along with local civil society organisations (CSOs) from the Middle East and North Africa. The objective of the project is to contribute to the effective development and implementation of policies, strategies, and legislation in line with the Convention on the Rights of the Child throughout the region. The project aims to establish a regional child rights network of CSOs in the region by supporting and strengthening the capacity of local organisations in four main areas: analysis and reporting, coordination and networking, advocacy, and child rights programme mainstreaming. Funding for this project was made possible thanks to the Swedish International Development Agency. This fact sheet identifies the commendable practices developed in the area of children’s rights by Yemen.
