Meet Our Team

We seek to deliver the voice that dwells in the hearts of Yemenis to the whole world. The voice of love, beauty, and hope, so we decided, a group of young people of different ages, dreams, and inclinations to turn that toxic energy into an energy that strengthens back the spirit of patriotism that has been weakened by the war.

"You are an extension of us, you have been given the responsibility to be the best successor to the best predecessor. The space is open for your creativity, so do not hold back.”
