Mabrouka Abdelhak is a teacher.

She has always wanted to be a teacher and believes her role is pivotal in helping children grow in confidence and shape the futures of both themselves and their countries.

She is one of the 360 teachers who will benefit from a project we are running in Medenine governorate, in south eastern Tunisia.

The project aims to build hope in youngsters through training teachers in modern teaching methods and helping boost pupils’ interest in school through extra-curricular and sports activities.

Tunisia struggles with youth unemployment, and Medenine is an area particularly underdeveloped, with poverty and unemployment widespread.
