Millennium Fellowship Project: Azm
Despite the ongoing war and hard life situations, there are many organizations in Yemen that focus on technology, education, poverty, and health and aim to help youth in Yemen find a purpose and strengthen their sense of belonging to the community by seeing that they are capable of positively impacting their own lives and the lives of those around them. However, without many connections or good research skills, it is hard for the youth to find these organizations. Similarly, the organizations often find volunteers and workers through connections. Azm is created to be a platform that connects both organizations with volunteers or workers through its website. Azm focuses on creating a community of organizations in Yemen that focus on advancing one or more SDG (thus itself will be advancing SDG 17) and helping youth find organizations that are safe, impactful, and developmental for their society and their own members.
