Partners in the Middle East & North Africa

Middle East and North Africa

Partners works across the MENA region with emerging leaders to promote democratic governance and an engaged civil society. With the help of our regional affiliates Partners Yemen and Partners Jordan, Partners has forged a network of trusted organizations with extensive on-the-ground contacts. 

We are dedicated to sustaining the locally-driven democracy movement and building the capacity of local activists, governments, and businesses to work together.
