New adventure in Tunisia
14 June 2019
Lamyn and Raoul embarked on a new and exciting adventure this week: presenting the COPOSO methodology of Young in Prison to organisations in Tunisia. Search for Common Ground - Tunisia (SFCG) invited us to share our experiences in reintegrating young people deprived of their liberty:
"We designed an intensive and diverse 1 day programme and immersed 18 people from 9 local NGO’s in our approach and Theory of Change. The exercises and discussions illustrated key components such as Relatedness and Imagination. The participating organisations such as WeYouth, Tunisia Plus, OTCD, and Insaf el Kef, are part of a coalition coordinated by SFCG that supports the reintegration of young people in contact with the law and prone to radicalisation.
Lamyn Belgaroui of YiP: “Providing the training made a special impression on me because of my Tunisian background. I am passionate about being of value to young people deprived of their liberty in Tunisia. And in so doing to contribute to increasing the motivation of the youth. The drive and power I have seen among young people gives hope for the future”.
YiP also attended a conference supported by the Dutch embassy that gathered policymakers and senior governmental stakeholders from the prison department to share lessons and set common goals. What struck us was the sincere and passionate presentations that were given by Judge Samia Doula, Head of the prison department Ferid Bouraoui and psychologist Sami Kallel.
