Program Background and Objective of Consultancy

FHI 360 is a not-profit human development organization with over 7000 employees in more than 70 countries. Since its creation in 1971, FHI 360 has been able to position itself as a player in international development, particularly in the sectors of health, education, nutrition, environment, economic development, civil society, gender equality, youth, research and technology.

FHI 360 has been selected by the Department of the United States of America to implement a development project on behalf of the National Office of Tunisian Crafts, entitled: « Collaborative Action for Artisanal Exports (ACEA) ». Funded by a donation, this project adopts an approach to develop the value chain of natural extracts in northwestern Tunisia to support women distilling essential oils in exporting their products to international markets.

In this perspective, the project has opted for the launch of a cluster that will be developed in collaboration with all the stakeholders of the value chain in order to integrate the GDAs and SMSAs that bring together these women artisans in a network at the same time.

Called « WIKI PAM », this cluster adopted the recommendations of a strategic segmentation study that was commissioned by the ACEA Project from a specialized international consulting firm.

Considering the imperative to prepare the direct beneficiaries of the project to the contact with an international identified client specialized in fair trade, concerned about the level of quality and the capacities of routing of the products towards the export, the expert is in charge of supporting the beneficiaries cooperatives in North West Tunisia in terms of improving the techniques of production of essential oils and methods of transporting these products to the international market. He will accompany the beneficiaries of the project until the realization of export operation.
