Our Continued support to women-focused Libyan CSOs

Mohammad Tunis

Last week the BCI team was in Tunis working with women-focused Libyan civil society organisations which, with the support of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, are implementing small projects as part of the UK Government funded Ante Raeda Program. 

At the Tunis gathering, Mohammad employed his technical magic to facilitate a collaborative discussion of women activists from Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.  He also worked with the Libyan organisations to produce videos to help them tell the stories of their projects.  We’ll be uploading those videos soon on our website and our YouTube Channel
