Help for Tunisia: Ways out of Poverty
Education and new jobs help people in Southern Tunisia
The people in Tunisia suffer from the high unemployment rate. In the South of Tunisia, in the province of Tataouine, every second university graduate is unemployed. Often, the qualifications acquired by the university graduates are not sufficient for the existing jobs, while the demands of the labor market are increasing at the same time. All those who have no job and consequently no income do not have chance of an adequate living space and the daily basic needs. In order to help people in Tunisia to live a life of dignity, we have set ourselves the task of reducing unemployment and training qualified personnel accordingly since 2012.
In a current project activity, Hilfswerk International increases the income and employment opportunities for the population of Southern Tunisia. The promotion and development of an innovative entrepreneurial culture aims at reducing the unemployment rate in Southern Tunisia:

Hence the qualifications of young men and women were adapted to the requirements of the labor market in Tunisia. Our help counteracted unemployment and poverty in the South of the country.
