About EFE-Yemen

Education For Employment Yemen was founded in 2008 and acts as a bridge between youth and private sector or self-employment opportunities. It first established offices in Sana'a and Taiz, and expanded to the governorates of Aden, Abyan, Al-Dhalea, Lahj, Marib, Al-Jawf, Amran and Shabwah. In 2016, EFE-Yemen paused programming amid the violence of Yemen's civil war. It resumed operations in 2017 as one of the few organizations offering tangible employment and economic opportunities to youth amid the ongoing conflict.
