Create and Build Together




The third session of the FTIC took place in Hammamet from the 3rd to the 8th of February 2016 in a hotel. The space reserved from the MEDWD was very warm and functional. There was a beautiful garden where the participants did their daily morning exercises.

This session brought together 19 girls, aged 20 to 34, coming from all over Tunisia. A great majority of them had been a part of the previous two sessions. Once arrived and welcomed, everyone shared their feelings and opinions about the previous sessions.
The following days, the workshops took place in a very warm atmosphere and the moments for physical exercises were extended.
The first morning was dedicated to sharing views and feelings about the socio-political Tunisian environment. The participants then started the program centered on the actions of the organizations.
