    Dear Samih,

    Thank you for uploading information on the KAB refresher workshop from Yemen. This kind of information from the countries that implement KAB is exactly what we need to make this website a living resource for the network of entrepreneurship education promoters. Great to see the video and a face from Yemen of a KAB practitioner! If possible, may I suggest that you put English subtitles on the interview with the gentleman (and also his name and title) so non-Arabic users will also be able to learn from the interview.

    Thanks and all the best - Jens Dyring Christensen
