UNDEF in support of youth empowerment and civic participation



Building strategies and implementing effective grassroot actions is at the core of ALDA's mission; nevertheless, without a strong network of co-workers and supporters, it can be very hard to realize. For this reason, we are extremely proud to announce that our work in Tunisia now has a new supporter: the United Nations Democracy Fund - UNDEF, which will specifically support the implementation of the project “Youth empowerment to build local democracy in Tunisia” (Autonomisation de la jeunesse pour construire une démocratie locale en Tunisie).

The project, conducted in partnership with the association “Tamkeen for Development”, has the overall objective to enhance the capacity of local Tunisian youth in mastering and managing the core concepts and methodologies linked to good governance and local cooperation.

More exactly, we foresee to boost the involvement of youth in local governance, through three main fields of action:

  1. Firstly, local youngsters will be trained in participatory democracy, learning when and how this technique is used;
  2. Then, following a field-study, the 12 principles of local good governance will be fostered;
  3. And, in parallel, we will act locally to improve the conditions for youngsters’ civic participation.

Once again, we heartily thank UNDEF for making this possible and for contributing to our mission in North Africa... we can’t wait to get out there!
