The PNT, in a press statement on Thursday, said the project, which was launched this month under auspices of Her Highness Princess Dana Firas, PNT president and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Cultural Heritage, is being implemented at 10 public schools in the Yemeni city of Aden, and features various activities and events related to Yemen's heritage.

According to the statement, the project's implementation comes within the framework of PNT's efforts to preserve Yemen's cultural heritage and raise related awareness by developing an extracurricular school program for children aging 7-12 years old in Yemen.

This stage was preceded by an intensive program in Jordan to train Yemeni teachers, based on PNT's accumulated expertise in this area, the statement said.

As the first of its kind regionally, the project is being implemented with funding from International Alliance for the Protection of Heritage in Conflict Areas (ALIPH), in cooperation with Yemeni Ministry of Education.

The project features a set of interactive activities based on cooperative and active learning methods, aimed to stimulate Yemeni students' interest in heritage at the local and global levels and direct their positive attitudes and behaviors, the statement noted.

In addition, the project contributes to stimulating Yemeni students' innovation and finding creative solutions to problems and challenges facing their societies in the heritage preservation field.
