Mohamed al Hani is the project coordinator in the Yemen program. Mohamed is a specialist in radio journalism and has participated in the capacity building and development of several media/journalists, particularly in the MENA region.

He has also been a trainer of media trainers and trainer for civil society actors and journalists in campaigning for social change in the same region in addition to the region of sub-Saharan Africa such as Rwanda, Somalia and Sudan.
