IDEAS has a long-standing partnership with a like-minded, local development organization working to bring about transformation in the lives of people in North Africa. They focus on those who are marginalized, vulnerable or disadvantaged. Areas of project focus are rural populations, people with disabilities, individuals and families in vulnerable situations, and palliative care.

The At Risk Sector works with people in the Tunisian society who are at risk and live in the margins of society, for instance female prisoners and mothers without family support. For several years, our partner has worked with female prisoners and is now looking for experts to join our new work with male prisoners and minors. We are looking for professionals who have experience of working in prisons and/or working with individuals who have completed their sentence.
