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 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.
We think of collective liberation as a vision to work towards and as a strategic framework that guides us and our work. We are commited to building the world we want to see by working, organizing, and strategizing collectively to advance social justice and build a democratic civic state where people are able to live with dignity, freedom, equality and justice.
