Founded in 2012, the International Youth Council-Yemen (IYCY) is a non-profit, non-governmental and youth-led organization that targets youth and community in general.
IYCY contributes to youth and community development through programs and interventions either supported by INGOs or through self-financed activities. IYCY’s work doesn’t only focus on youth and women but also on the community as a whole. Its projects include WASH, nutrition, food, health, governance, energy, environment and climate change as well as youth development.
IYCY is very keen on embracing youth and community regardless of their political view, religion, colour, ethnicity or background. IYCY adopts the values of integrity, transparency, and credibility which contribute to the success of its work with other CSOs and INGOs. It has a very good relationship with local authorities and government branches which allow better coordination and implementation of activities and projects.
