    I've become friends with this girl on art and writing sites over the past few years. She's a very smart and a really talented artist and writer. She now writes stories in English better than many natives speakers I've come across. She has no resources, no opportunities for secondary education and is a second class citizen in that country. She's not really religious but is forced to cover up, submit to all custom and traditions, and be a repressed, discriminated against female in her culture and everyday life. Her writing in English has improved greatly in the few years I've known her, she's clearly a great learner and smart and is trying her best to learn all this stuff and get better on her own. She's sounded more depressed and sometimes suicidal as our correspondents have gone on. She's 18 now and has nothing to look forward to in her mind and I don't blame her for feeling that way.

    Does anyone know of any more progressive Muslim or other nonreligious organizations, charities, university programs, writing/art funds or fellowships that can help her get out, get a student Visa, asylum, anything to help get her in a college/uni somewhere in Europe, US, Australia, or anywhere not so repressive?

    She's not getting asylum as she's not in danger enough. Illegal immigration imo.

    Plane ticket to England. Land. Walk into a local council building.

    Sorted for life.

    Also agree with poster above. Pics are needed for a more definitive conclusion.

    Amazed we haven't had a request for pictures yet...?

    Edit ^ beaten by 5 minutes.

    Isn't Yemen supposed to be suffering with bombings etc by Saudi forces and be short on health care and infrastructure along with alleged war crimes?
    There may well be a case for asylum (currently) but I've got no idea how you would apply for it and get out of the country..?


    Oh, yea, pictures please ? :)

    Why it has always to be Europe, US and Straya? plenty of other countries with middle-eastern communities in SEA. If she's a muslim then Indonesia or Malaysia are the best possible place for her.

    She has internet in Yemen?

    Where has she been taught English? If she has no resources, how is she affording English lessons or an English curriculum school in Yemen?

    Ask her if she'd be okay in the Rapid City, SD area. I could use some help around the ranch

    Art schools/scholarships/projects, cultural programs/exchange (don't know who'd want to go to Yemen at present, but maybe), au pair or any kind of job that would get her out of Yemen and to safer countries with better prospects for a smart young woman.
    Good luck.
