The Obroz programme:
Initiated in April 2016 by the British Council in Tunisia, the Obroz programme aims to support Tunisian civil society to implement community based projects and communication actions targeting young and marginalized populations. This programm is funded by the European Union and supported by leading Tunisian partners such as Jamaity, Jasmin Foundation and SHANTI.
The first phase of the programme (2016) strengthened a network of 36 Tunisian civil society organizations (CSOs) of Medenine, Bizerte and Greater Tunis in communication strategy, in order to carry out communication campaigns within their communities. The 2nd Phase of the project (2017) provided further technical support to the associations and awarded grants to 17 micro-projects implemented by Obroz Network associations. In 2019, the 3rd phase continued to support the Obroz Network's first associations in training, coaching and in the setting up of community based projects. This phase is supported and delivered by SHANTI.
As part of extending its support to Tunisian civil society actors, the British Council in Tunisia is now expending its Network and calling associations from the regions of Greater Tunis (Tunis, Manouba, Ariana, Ben Arous), Kef, Kairouan, Monastir and Sousse, to participate to take part in the new phase of the programme and get the needed training and support to implement community based projects.
