Enhancing Citizen Participation in Building Social Cohesion in Yemen

Together with the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (ICRD), PartnersYemen and PartnersGlobal are working to reduce conflict and promote social cohesion by enhancing the capacity of local religious leaders, educators, and civil society in Yemen.

The program has engaged young Yemenis across the country to promote social cohesion, as well as bolster existing civil society-led initiatives in local communities that support dialogue and sustainable alternatives to participating in armed conflict. Together, we are building collaborative networks of trainers and activists who will continue to put their skills to use well beyond the completion of the project. Partners knows that such local ownership is key to establishing lasting peace across the country.
