Our strategy

Meet the emergency needs of families affected by political instability and violence. Reduce tensions between communities to create economic opportunities for vulnerable households, improve families’ ability to weather recurring shocks and promote gender integration and equal opportunities for women and girls.

The context

Yemen faces deep, systemic problems that have resulted in protracted conflicts throughout the country. It is the poorest country in the Middle East, and economic difficulties sparked uprisings in 2011. Since then, continued overlapping tensions are bringing the civilian population to the brink of an emergency situation.

Our work

  • Emergency response: Providing food and increasing access to water and sanitation for the most vulnerable families.
  • Children & Youth: Helping children through trauma and supporting 800 young people aged 15 to 26 to develop job skills and improve their communities.
