About the Project

Education For Employment EFE-Tunisie, have partnered with the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia to launch the supplemental phase of the project “ Supporting Job Creation for Young Tunisians from Marginalized Communities” to increase employment (including self-employment) among young Tunisians in communities proximate with the Libyan border.

EFE-Tunisie has become the country’s leading civil society organization addressing youth unemployment. This was made by providing more than 16 000 young women and men with skills and tools to find their first job or start a business, including more than 2132 youth directly placed into demand sectors, while also influencing institutional level systems change by working to improve feedback loops between the public and private sector.

With this second round of supplemental funding, EFE aims to build upon its success by providing additional opportunities for young Tunisians to improve their economic outcomes by conducting youth outreach as well as employability and job training activities. In order to continue expanding the project’s focus nationally and enhance its reach to youth (aged 18-35) from diverse and underserved regions of Tunisia, beneficiaries of this project will now include Tunisian youth living in communities proximate with the Libyan border. (Governorate of Medenine) Activities under this new objective will be achieved by emphasizing the importance of local contextualization and community involvement. In order to do so, EFE will establish a field office in the target region, conduct a robust regional ecosystem assessment to better understand employment motivations and realities for youth, and guarantee the involvement of local actors and stakeholders in project activities. Project interventions will focus on encouraging youth to seek formal employment opportunities through the delivery of employability and targeted technical and soft skills trainings and awareness events.

Regional market and needs analysis in in communities proximate with the Libyan border

EFE-Tunisie will conduct a regional market and needs analysis on communities close to the Libyan border to further strengthen the project’s impact. This analysis will provide nuanced information on the regional market, key technical and softs skills in demand from employers, and specific challenges that are faced by key stakeholders, including employers, educational partners, institutional partners, government agencies, and the youth themselves. The analysis will build upon learnings from the initial ecosystem assessment carried out in the governorate of Medenine and will hone in on youth motivations for working in the informal market and the status of youth employment in these communities

The assessment will also seek to identify synergies with the government of Tunisia’s commitment to lower citizen engagement with the informal economy. This assessment will inform the approach taken in the following activities for the new objective. Results of the assessment will determine if any adjustments will need to be made to initial project activities and targets given the challenging eco-system and need for further data and identification of opportunities and potential partners.
