The British-Yemeni Society was
inaugurated in February 1993. Its objectives are to promote friendship and understanding
between the peoples of the two countries and to advance public knowledge in Britain about
the Republic of Yemen, its history, geography, economy and culture.
The Society holds regular meetings and lectures and has been involved in
sponsoring visits of Yemeni musicians to Britain, the recruitment of British teachers to
work in Yemen, support for a medical clinic in Aden, a visit of Welsh musicians and
craftsmen to Yemen, and support for publications and exhibitions.
It also provides a focus for contact between individuals of both
countries for the development of cultural, commercial and humanitarian activities.
H.E. the Yemen Ambassador in London and H.E. the British
Ambassador in Sanaa are Honorary Presidents.
The Society is a charity registered in the UK (No. 1027531)
and its affairs are managed by an elected Committee and Honorary Officers.
Membership is open to all who have an interest in the Republic of
Yemen. The programme of activities includes six lecture meetings per year. Members also
receive the Societys annual Journal.
It is hoped you will join and support the British-Yemeni Society.
