Yemeni month in Estonian Schools

December saw the beginning of The Yemeni month in four different schools in Estonia; these schools were Audentes Erakool, Rääma Elementry School, Vesiroosi Gymnasium and Tartu Miina Härma School. During this month these schools were involved in some activities that included making Henna tattoos and making some simple Yemeni food such as fried bread (Tauah Bread). And a salsa kind of dip called Sahaweq. The students also made an effort to make this bread and sell it at the Christmas Bazars. The money they were able to collect was added to the “Entelak” project, which is a Yemeni project to assist girls who have fallen out of school to continue their education.

Tauah Bread recipe:

Some add a filling of scrambled eggs and tomato and chilli to it, other fillings can be added also and fried along with the bread.
