About Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in
hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people
triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.

Program / Department Summary

Mercy Corps has been active in Tunisia in July 2011, working to support youth employability and entrepreneurship
opportunities, increasing civic engagement, and improving the capacities of local authorities, civil society
organizations, and private sector organizations to engage in positive governance. Our goal is to empower and
engage citizens, support the development of an inclusive and enabling environment, foster resilience, and support
social cohesion.

Mercy Corps Tunisia’s strategy adopts a multi-tiered approach to address constraints at the national level,
capacity building at the local level; and supporting individual citizens, in particular youth, to build their social
capital. Our cross-cutting themes of Peace-building and Citizenship, Gender and Inclusion, Resilience and
Migration are integrated into our programs to support an enabling environment in Tunisia where people are
empowered, included and engaged with equal access to opportunities.
With our head office in Tunis, we currently have three field offices in Gafsa, Medenine and Jendouba, with
programs funded through a variety of donors, including AFD, EC, SDC, Hivos, Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs
and ROTA. Our mission, vision and strategy is actualized through the coordinated and effective delivery of each
complementary program, and we are constantly seeking to enhance the quality of our implementation in order to
maximize the positive impact of our work.
