Youth Without Borders Association TUNISIA
Youth without Borders Association is an independent non-profit organization
founded in 2011 by a group of youth and for youth, which aims to develop
associative culture, the spirit of volunteering, participation and citizenship among young people in Tunisia.
YWB works to initiate the different categories of people, especially youth and women,
to the democratic exercise through a better participation in the public, political and
civic life in order to build a better future for Tunisia. It does this through three major
pillars; election observation, civic participation and electoral education and leadership training
and capacity building for women and youth. YWB works at the national and regional level through
partnership with several civil society actors.
The objectives of YWB organization include:
To contribute to the spread of a culture of dialogue, volunteering,
initiative and openness towards plurality and diversity.
To contribute to the development and the consolidation of the
values of active citizenship, and fostering the national identity
among the youth.
To contribute to the promotion of democratic and transparent
elections through monitoring and awareness-raising programs
To contribute to youth awareness in order to preserve and
protect private and public properties.
Organize training, seminars, workshops, camps, and activities
seeking youth integration in the civil society, and
identification of their issues and ambitions.
To participate in international and regional conferences
and seminars to promote the Tunisia in diverse domains.
To organize think tank activities and the publication of
researches and studies in multitude domains on youth advocacy,
women empowerment, education, human rights, development,
health related issues, environment and sports.
To achieve these objectives YWB has a variety of projects
that it has implemented in the community with positive results.
These projects vary from women participation to election
observation to empowering young girls to take part in community
leadership. A major example of such a project is the umbrella HEYA
Program which is a regional program implemented in six countries
in the MENA region including Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Yemen, Tunisia
and Irag. Youth Without Borders works with other five NGO partners
and represents Tunisia in the program. The HEYA Program aims to
increase women's active participation in public spheres in the
MENA region for sustainable and gender equitable changes in
policies and practice to ensure that the voice of women at
all levels including the marginalized is heard. It spans three years
and 720 women are set to benefit from this program in Tunisia.
YWB have had many achievements in their quest to make Tunisia a
country with equal chances for everybody including women and the
youth. Among the achievements is the Convoy of Women and Citizenship
on July 2011 to sensitize women to actively take part in the election.
Another area of achievement is the 'I elect, I decide the future of
Tunisia' Forum that took place in five regions, Beja, Tataouin, Kef,
Tozeur and Monastir, with the presence of the Higher Independent
Commission of the Election and three experts in the field of election.
This program included dialogues, youth competitions and awards.
