The Obroz programme was initiated in April 2016 with the following Specific Objective: “Civil society is better able to plan and deliver communications to vulnerable youth.”
Phase 1, which was delivered from April to August 2016, consisted in establishing and empowering a network of 36 Tunisian CSOs operating in Medenine and Bizerte Governorates and the Greater Tunis. Eighty representatives of 36 CSOs received intensive training in strategic communications and were enabled to deliver local communications campaigns in their communities.
This first phase of the Obroz programme consisted in a Learn-Do-Learn approach to CSO capacity-building aimed at (i) enhancing select CSOs capacity to deliver communications campaigns through training and learning by direct experience, and (ii) getting participating CSOs to deliver campaigns engaging marginalised and vulnerable youth.
Phase 2 of the Obroz programme consisted in the award of mini-grants to 17 CSOs affiliated with the British Council’s Obroz network. Phase 2 was designed with the purpose of further supporting the Obroz CSOs and strengthening their capacities to run projects in their respective communities.
The initial geographic scope of the Obroz programme in the pilot phase covered the four governorates of the Greater Tunis region, and the governorates of Bizerte and Medenine.
While we will continue targeting the three initial regions by furthering our support to the first generation of Obroz CSOs, in phase 2 we will geographically expand the Obroz network into additional areas to be identified at a later stage in accordance with the British Council team.
