Safe Havens Project

The Nada Foundation launched the Safe Havens Project to aid girls forced into marriage before the age of majority, and those who have suffered domestic violence. The Project rescues girls who have been forced into marriage, negotiates the dissolution of the marriage contract between the families of the child bride and groom, and establishes safe living conditions for the child if an agreement not to pursue the marriage cannot be reached with the guardians. Safe Havens performs these services in keeping with the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child Treaty which has been ratified by Yemen.

Advocacy for Children

Nada has established many highly impactful humanitarian programs to promote education and protect girls from underage marriage and domestic violence. This effort was achieved through the use of media and community outreach and awareness programs.
Since 2017 the Foundation has managed to nullify hundreds of illegal underage marriages, and rescue children from domestic violence. The Foundation has also disbursed more than 60 scholarships to aid girls in their development and ensure a good future through employment.

The Nada with her Foundation also runs a shelter for girls who flee marriage or domestic abuse. It is hoping to spread its influence across International borders, helping girls have a childhood and thrive throughout the world.
