Yemen Socatra Nursery Project
SmallWorld has been able to build a fully equipped nursery next to a school for hundreds of children in Socarta–Yemen, allowing those children to have access to basic education and preparatory curriculum before they join their school. This project was an essential part in the lives of children who did not have anywhere to go or anything to do or learn at a very young age . This nursery will give them the opportunity to get ready for the school years and enhance their future education.
A Computer Laboratory in Tripoli, Lebanon; has been installed and fully equipped for underprivileged children who have no access to computers or proper education. Many of those children are dropouts and have a history of abuse . This computer lab oratory will give them an opportunity to experience a new skill in a fun and educational environment .
