War in Yemen: New skills help Yemen's women survive

Whether traditional or modern, sewing or computing, a charity is attempting to equip women in Yemen with the skills to make a livelihood and earn a steady income in the war-torn country.

    Yemen's civil war has made life a lot harder for all Yemenis and women and children are the most vulnerable.

    But some charities are now helping them earn a living, teaching them new skills so that they can support themselves and not rely upon donations.

    Al Jazeera’s Sara Khairat has more on one of them.
