Update: The People of Yemen project
November 2, 2012 Leave a comment
Today, I wanted to write specifically about the project that I’ve started around the month of September. Around the same time, I wrote a post regarding the project as an idea and was excited to start it. For those who do not know about the photo project, it’s basically a project to show people around the world a positive image of the country and its people.
The project isn’t self served- it’s a community project and effort. To make this project successful, we need contributors that are willing to showcase their pictures on the People of Yemen Facebook page. I do want to make clear that this page will only posts pictures of the people of Yemen, not the beautiful landscapes of the country.
I’m really glad to say that we do have a website up and running with all the photos we post on our Facebook page. As we look to expand on the project, we hope to see people contributing by sending any photo they have with a caption of their choice and the location where you took the photo. We’ve made it easier for our audience to submit photo(s) by going on our website and clicking on the “submit a photo” tab or you can visit out Facebook page and send us an inbox. We also receive pictures by e-mail (please see ‘about’ section of FB page.)
Those who’ve participated from the start really started the base for the project. With that, I would like to say thank you to the individuals who have contributed from the beginning. Thanks in advance to those who will contribute now and/or in the future to the project. Without the community (Yemenis and non-Yemenis), it would have never had the same feeling.
Also, special thanks to the People of Yemen team!
