The Yemen Peace Project complies with all United States laws and regulations concerning the conduct of nonprofit organizations working internationally. There are currently no general prohibitions on such organizations doing business in Yemen. The US government and international bodies have placed sanctions on several individuals living or operating in Yemen. The YPP vets all of our local employees, contractors, volunteers, and grant recipients to ensure that none of our activities violate US or international sanctions. Current information on US sanctions on Yemeni individuals can be found here.

The Yemen Peace Project is independent, non-sectarian, and does not employ or partner with any individuals or organizations that promote sectarian or violent beliefs or views. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for and promoting the rights of women, youth, and minorities.


Part of the New York City portion of our 2016 International Yemeni Film & Arts Festival was sponsored by New York University’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies. The Center allowed the YPP to hold our NYC art exhibition at their facility and provided partial event staffing at no cost.

The Washington, DC portion of our 2016 International Yemeni Film & Arts Festival was sponsored in part by the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington.

The Marburg, Leipzig, and Berlin (Germany) portions of our 2016 International Yemeni Film & Arts Festival were made possible by Marburg University, the German-Yemeni Society, and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, an independent charitable foundation associated with the Social Democratic Party of Germany
