La Voix du Yémen was created during the uprising of 2011. The name was inspired by the weekly publication Sawt al-Yemen (“The Voice of Yemen”), which was founded in 1946 by Ahmed Mohammed Nu’man and Mahmud al-Zubairy before the 1948 coup against the Imam. The site was the first and only news website in French about Yemen with the objective of covering the historical events that were happening, as well as becoming a source of information about the country.
With the new version of our website, now available in French, English and Arabic, our objective is to offer a different vision of Yemen through articles on social issues, culture and analysis. This is inspired by the unfortunate reality of the weak coverage of the situation in Yemen by mainstream media, and its sole focus on terrorism and security issues. Our photo and video reports also aim to realize that objective by highlighting stories usually ignored by traditional medias, such as initiatives related to women’s rights or the environment, the Yemeni art scene or the historical and cultural patrimony of the country.
Besides our reporting, we also welcome any contribution, in any of the three languages, by journalists who wish to write and publish their work or by people who want to share their feelings and thoughts about Yemen in order for La Voix du Yémen to also become a platform of exchange and discussion about Yemen.Français
