SFCG’s mission in Tunisia is to promote the culture of dialogue and diversity through the involvement of  all parts of society while building their capacities. SFCG works in Tunisia to help members of Tunisian  society to address conflicts and differences constructively through cooperation and dialogue. SFCG Tunisia works across multiple channels, mainly with youth, CSOs, media actors, security forces, and local  authorities to build the capacity of individuals and institutions to address challenges including differences  and acting on common points. Through this approach and partnerships, SFCG-Tunisia has four main  strategic objectives: (i) Promoting Peace Education; (ii) Fostering non-violent social dialogue; (iii)  Enhancing participatory and inclusive governance; and (vi) Transforming Violent Extremism in Tunisia.  More information about our Tunisia program can be found here. 

Project Summary 

The National Peace Education Curriculum Initiative comes as a third stage following the two-year  experience of the pilot peace education program implemented in Tunisia. The pilot consisted in a C/PVE  project aiming at fostering the resilience of Tunisian children and youth vis-à-vis violent and extremist  narratives. The project received considerable buy-in from the Ministry of Education (MoE), that was its  most strategic partner. The results achieved through the pilot phases led the MoE to voice its interest in  creating a locally owned national curriculum that would eventually be generalized on all Tunisian primary  schools. This initiative thus seeks to develop a national peace education curriculum with the help of  national and international experts in the fields of curriculum development, child psychology, M&E,  pedagogy etc. The project also includes a second component consisting in the creation of 15 peace  clubs targeting a different age group (14-20 years) through sub-grants. The peace clubs will be the fruit of  a collaboration between local CSOs (the sub-grantees) and local youth institutions such as youth centers.  The aim of these clubs is to foster youth involvement in local decision-making processes while doing so in  aa constructive and non-violent manner.
