Our strategy

Empower women and youth, especially in marginalized areas, to develop productive initiatives that move forward the spirit of change that began with the Arab Awakening.

The context

The revolution in Tunisia sparked the 2011 Arab Awakening — a dynamic historical moment that is transforming the entire region. Young people, who comprise 50 percent of the country's population, led the revolution and will play a vital role in the country's transition. An extreme urban-rural divide must be bridged, and women are exploring new freedoms since the fall of the Ben Ali regime.

Our work

  • Conflict & Governance: Supporting the growth and skills of local civil society leaders, especially women and youth, to create a new participatory culture
  • Economic opportunity: Developing new job opportunities for young people
