IDEAS partners with a Christian development organization in Tunisia working to bring about transformation in the lives of people in North Africa who are marginalized, vulnerable or disadvantaged; in the groups that work with them; and in the societies in which they live. Since 1982, our partner has worked in projects conducted in partnership with local organizations. Areas of project focus are: rural populations; people with disabilities; individuals and families in vulnerable situations; and palliative care.

Our partner works on the principles of transformational development – seeking to share the love of God both through work and sharing life with local people. This involves mentoring, educating, planning and looking for resources together with our local partners.
