In 2021, we continue our work with Adolescent Girls in Tunis and Beni Khalled to build trust and mutual understanding of their needs.
In 2021, we were able to safely host three in person activities and a continuous online discussion. After the pandemic disruption, we were able to provide the Girls with tablets to stay informed and in partnership with Association Lina Ben Mhenni and Instagrammer Amal.Books we delivered more than 300 books in Arabic, English and French to the Public Library of Beni Khalled.
