The British-Yemeni Society was founded in February 1993 to promote mutual friendship and understanding, and to advance public knowledge in the United Kingdom about the Republic of Yemen, its history, geography, economy, and culture.
The Society holds regular meetings and lectures throughout the year and has been involved in sponsoring artistic visits to and from the UK and Yemen, support for medical and educational initiatives in Yemen, and backing for publications and exhibitions in the UK. The Society also provides a focus for contact between individuals of both countries for the development of cultural, commercial, and humanitarian activities.
The British-Yemeni Society is a charity registered in the UK (No. 1027531). Its joint Honorary Presidents are the current Yemeni Ambassador in London and the British Ambassador in Sana'a, although its affairs are managed by an elected committee and Honorary Officers.
