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:
Women, peace and security – women have a crucial role to play in building peace, both in their communities and in international peace talks.
Youth for peace – young people in Yemen are agents for peace and change.
Building safer communities – through local organisations, communities can be empowered to make their lives safer.
