The recent events in Yemen have transformed hundreds of thousands of Yemeni youth into grassroots political activists, ending many years of youth disenfranchisement in Yemeni politics. Believing in the importance of sustaining this momentum and enabling Yemeni youth to continue playing an active and positive role in shaping the political landscape of Yemen, Resonate!Yemen has developed this project to support in developing more institutionalized youth entities.
The project will build the capacity of 10 youth groups from the change and freedom squares of Sana'a, Taiz, Aden, Houdeidah, and Hadhramout.
The program is designed on the principle of participation in planning to address the needs and take into account the privacy of each group involved in it. Each participating group will also have the opportunity to submit a small grant application to fund a project in their area of thire intrest.
