Saferworld has been working with Yemeni civil society since 2010. We support women, youth, community groups and non-governmental organisations in their efforts to build peace and respond to the impact of the war. Despite extremely challenging circumstances these organisations continue to provide relief and safety to their communities, offer new skills to young people, and support communities in addressing the issues they face.
In Yemen we are working on:
Women, peace and security – we support women’s peacebuilding initiatives and promote the role of women in conflict prevention and resolution.
Youth, peace and security – we work with young people in Yemen to support initiatives that bridge divides and promote peace.
Building safer communities – our support to communities in Yemen helps them identify and tackle their security concerns.
Strengthening civil society – we support civil society organisations to become more effective and sustainable and to advocate for communities’ needs with their local councils.
