Who are we?

We are an independent media collective engaged in using video to tell our under-told and under-heard struggles. We are young Yemeni female and male organizers, activists, journalists, videographers, photographers, and bloggers who are passionate about using creative communication strategies as a tool for social change. Our work is guided by the collective vision and goals of our community to build a free and just world.

We are open to everyone and are strongly rooted in the spirit of volunteerism and inclusiveness, providing opportunities for people from all backgrounds, ages and skill levels.

SupportYemen does not receive any financial aid from any country in the world or any governmental organization.
