Association of Human Development in Kairouan

The NGO was created during the NGO training, and is now becoming one of the most remarkable NGOs of Kairouan.

They are converting an RCD old office in the Medina into their NGO’s office.

They are now doing reconstruction work, painting, and the new bureau should be re

ady by the end of January 2012.

They obtained this office after they met with the governor of Kairouan and convinced him to offer them that bureau.

Mr Jalel Jomaa, the president of ADHK, helped several E-Mediat participating NGOs in organizing Conferences, and seminars.

He is well skilled with computers and a Social Media lover, and he is very helpful with other Kairouanian NGOs.

Their future projects are mainly focused on High Schools and Primary Schools kids.

One of their main objectives is to spread the culture of effective Freedom of Speech and the basics of Human Rights education among the future generations.

AAO Sfax: Bonding Entertainment, Sciences & Nature

First thing we noticed when we visited AAO SFAX was that the NGOs of Sfax are really working together.

In fact, the Association of the Friends of Birds is being hosted by another E-Mediat participating NGO: The Association of the Continuity of Generations (ACG Sfax).

The latter hosts two NGOs which are: Friends of Thyna, and AAO Sfax.

All of the mentioned NGOs are participating in E-Mediat Tunisia, and decided to work together after the 3rd module of the training.

One of the main challenges in the region of Sfax is entertainment, as families do not find suitable places to visit or take their kids to.

AAO have a plan for this, they finished the study of an Ecological Touristic project that may solve this problem.

This project may solve several problems and create opportunities:

· Protect engendered bird species.

· Create jobs for qualified researchers, and unqualified workers.

· Create research possibilities for the Science/Environment university students of the region of Sfax and the center of Tunisia.

· Create a space where families can gather together and enjoy the beautiful landscape of the “COTUSAL”.

The previous photos are snapshots from the AAO Scientific Eco-Tourism project.
