Saferworld has been working with Yemeni civil society organisations since 2010. We support women, youth and community groups in their efforts to build peace and respond to the impact of the war. Despite extremely challenging circumstances, these organisations and their volunteers are continuing to provide relief and safety to their communities, offering new skills to young people, and promoting ways in which communities can live peacefully.
In Yemen we are working on:
Gender, peace and security – we support women’s peacebuilding initiatives and promote the role of women in conflict prevention and resolution.
Empowering young people – 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.
