Attalaki and other organizations are participating in co-designing a learning workshop with USAID
Attalaki had the privilege of both participating as well as co-designing a learning workshop with USAID here in Tunisia. A number of participants were gathered from across the civil society sector from around the world, such as Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, the United States as well as Tunisia. The aim of the workshop was to “Build resilient communities” through fostering collaboration, capacity strengthening and monitoring, evaluation, and learning techniques.
Although the training covered a wealth of valuable content, such as Storytelling, branding, M&E, and the use of USAID-related tools, the most profound impact came from Networking and engaging in field visits. These experiences allowed our organization to connect with other civil society actors from around the world who are working on similar issues related to FORB (Freedom of Religion and Belief). We encountered diverse stories, challenges, failures, successes, and breakthroughs, providing us with valuable insights and lessons to apply in our own context.
Recognizing Tunisia’s rich history of faith and diversity, the workshop thoughtfully arranged field trips for all attendees to various religious landmarks. These included visits to el Zitouna Mosque, Bet Mordechai Synagogue, and St. George’s Anglican Church, offering participants a chance to honor and explore the country’s religious heritage.
This workshop fostered a strong bond among participants by addressing shared challenges. It served as a powerful reminder to our team that we are not alone in facing the different hardships and obstacles. The experience highlighted the significance of collaboration as the key to driving impactful and positive change.
