Push to Increase Women Teachers in Rural Yemen
The percentage of women teachers in rural areas in Hajja is less than 10 percent. The number is the result of a noticeable increase in illiteracy in these areas, according to Mohammed Al-Qaedi, a resident in Hajja countryside.
A new study conducted by Ibhar Corporation and funded by the Response Project indicated there are several obstacles obstructing the employment of women teachers in rural areas such as lack of women students in these areas who finished college, a lack of enough jobs for women in general and a difficulty sending women teachers to remote areas.
The study said women teachers in urban areas received a third of the new jobs given to teachers in Yemen while women teachers in rural areas received one-fifth of teaching jobs . . .
