The emergence of small-to medium-size social enterprises in the Middle East was crucial for the economy and specifically for the labor market ( Chalhoub 2011 ).

famine in countries working to expand educational access today. Many of these countries face the risks of famine or food shortage, and these risks are particularly severe in developing countries with the greatest exposure to the negative consequences of climate change (Lewin 2009 ; Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2012 ; Seaman et al. 2014 ). Documenting how the famine affected educational attainment in China can help predict how current or future famines may affect educational attainment of people elsewhere. This study contributes to the existing
