Yemen Changemaker Videos Feature Emerging Youth Leaders


To assist Yemeni youth in realizing their rights during Yemen’s political transition,​ Equal Access worked with youth leaders​ to produce four​ Changemaker​s​ documentary films​. T​he documentaries​​are​ designed to provide inspiring and compelling examples of Yemeni youth taking the initiative to create positive change in their society. The Changemakers documenta​ry serie​s was​ broadcast nationally.

Changemakers​ is a part of the RIGHTS-II project, implemented by Equal Access and funded by the US Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). RIGHTS-II addressed key areas focused on during Yemen’s National Dialogue Conference (NDC) and political transition, with a particular focus on youth-related elements. The NDC’s priority issues included the Southern and Sa’ada issues, the constitution, transitional justice, national reconciliation, rights and freedoms, good governance, development, and social, environmental, and security issues. RIGHTS-II activities targeted six governorates (Sana’a, Aden, Taiz, Lahj, Hodeida and Hadramout) over 18 months, finishing in January 2015.
