Members of Britain’s Yemeni diaspora came together at around the time of the revolution and formed Independent Yemen Group. IYG consists of mostly (but not exclusively) Yemeni professionals who want to support and promote those who work to improve the lives of people in Yemen.
In Yemen there are many groups and organisations which work tirelessly for their particular cause and we want to showcase them and highlight the work they do. Scant resources, high rents and difficult fund raising application forms make national and international grants inaccessible to the majority of them. Yet they are no less deserving of support than the larger organisations which can attract better trained staff dedicated to this purpose.
