A woman in divided Taiz province is trying to empower other women and girls to obtain brighter future.

    In Yemen, a makeshift school run by a remarkable survivor of the three-year-long civil war is teaching a fortunate few women to read and write. Taiz province is sandwiched between Houthi rebels in the north and government-controlled areas in the south.
