Network of European Foundations: New philanthropy partnerships in Tunisia

In 2013, following the Arab Spring, the Network of European Foundations brought together a group of European foundations to establish Fikra, the Tunisia Joint Fund, with the aim of contributing to the transition of Tunisian society.

Fikra took the decision to trust in the ideas of local communities in the north-west region of Tunisia and invest in realising those ideas.

With this approach, Fikra projects are building local capacity and supporting entrepreneurship by offering customized training and coaching to potential grantees, as well as funding projects with relatively small grants.

Fikra programmes support community projects in Tunisia, in this case a small mushroom growing enterprise.
