Inspirational video from two Yemeni Springboard participants talking about what the Springboard programme has done for them
The first is a young woman, Sumaih, who was never able to speak in front of people but has made her part of the video herself. She’s now been commissioned to write her first novel, in a country that does not normally encourage women writers.
The second woman, Hayat, is 60 years old and is filmed in her own home. She called herself the ‘grandmother’ of her group. She has now learnt how to drive and has joined the local gym.
