This project aims to support economic development in rural areas in the South West of Tunisia.
It concerns the region of Selta in Kasserine home of the Tunisian democratic revolution in 2011
This town has 400 people, men are working in masonry away from home and women are abandoned alone with children living from goats and sheep breeding.
These young women are educated, dynamic and have only a dream: a job as you can see in the attached video.
Our project aims initially to provide employment to 15% of women in this region by creating a weaving workshop of traditional and decorative Tunisian's carpets
The carpets will be sold in Tunisian cities and incomes will self-finance the project and duplicate it in other parts of the Tunisia disadvantaged regions
As a Tunisian Rotary club, we have an obligation to participate in the economic development of our regions, especially as our club has the necessary skills for all plans to meet this challenge.
In addition, we have a sponsor and partner of size for this action which is the Tunisian AfreeCan association which has over 500 volunteers who are dedicated to social actions: https://www.afreecan.info/
Please see here the video we made during the visit of these women:
