In line of the impressive and vital role played by the Netherlands in supporting peace and development efforts in Yemen and on the World Tolerance Day, Mr. Marc Mazairac, the second Secretary for Commercial & Economic Affairs in Netherlands' embassy in Sana'a, thankfully extended a valuable support to Peace House Social Organization for Compacting Revenge.
This support provided highly advanced technology sets worth of about US$ 12,22200 as a contribution to our unique, educational activity among tribal circles all over provinces of Yemen.
It is the first splendid initiative in type, impressively reflects the well-understanding of the donors towards the significance of peace and development support in Yemen especially envisage the fact that most important obstacles blocking the way of development are of revenge violation, extremism, arms misuse and poor awareness herein. It quite nonsense to refer to development without having social peace and tracing its grounds.
Therefore, our Organization might be the only or the most struggling and impressive one targeting the tribal circles. Since founded in 1997, it has been adopting a vital, serious initiative represented through targeting the tribal society within different activities and ultimate potentiality. We tell no secret by saying that we have managed to attract and receive respect and trust of most of tribal chiefs and public thanks to our endless efforts herein.
It is worth mentioning that over 500 victims per annum in Yemen are plagued by arms misuse and other hundreds for tribal disputes.
Observes argue that supporting any overall development in Yemen evolves from such inclination. It is the optimal way to make this promising experience a big success and incite other counterparts to break into this challenge for putting an end to this unhealthy, uncivilized phenomenon for better, real development prospects in Yemen.
