Amid one of the world’s most devastating conflicts, examples of resiliency in Yemen continue to inspire even the most cynical. At the district, village and community levels, leaders work tirelessly to secure essential resources where they are needed most. For example, initiatives to protect families as they relocate to new communities and resolve disputes before they escalate have contributed to the stability of individual neighborhoods, districts and governorates in the face of broader conflict.
Through the Promoting and Enhancing Local Stabilization in Yemen (PELSY) program, PartnersGlobal and Partners Yemen are working to provide locally legitimate authorities with strategies and skills that will help them address a wide range of community needs. We also support these authorities to leverage effective partnerships to manage scarce resources and rebuild their communities. Through strong partnerships and impactful community projects, we are helping to strengthen the norms of participatory governance, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable peace.
