Our Story

In the name of God.

At Rise for Yemen, we're a social business with a mission to empower communities in Yemen by creating purpose-driven products to fund sustainable projects in Yemen. When Covid broke out in 2020, we knew that we needed to understand the problems in Yemen before we could help solve them. We interviewed people in Yemen and those working in organizations dedicated to Yemen. We matched skilled volunteers to projects in Yemen to allow people to give back beyond a donation. We found that there was a lot of interest in helping, but the projects needed funding.

Staying true to our original commitment to “helping beyond a donation”, in 2022, we began working on the Treasures of Yemen puzzle. We hired a freelance designer in Yemen to support local talent and fully funded the project. We became a not-for-profit organization so that we could sell these products and donate 100% of the profits to innovative projects in Yemen.

Our goal is to make a difference in Yemen by involving volunteers and creating a social business model that can continue to make an impact for years to come. Join us at Rise for Yemen, and let's make a difference together.

Together, let’s rise.
