'forUs' Closing Ceremonies: 180 Tunisian Youth Graduates

May 21, 2017

Our Youth Our Hope (OYOHO) celebrated the graduation ceremony of the 'forUs' Program on the 20th and 21st of May 2017. The events packed auditoriums in the youth centers of Ibn Khaldun and Hrairia and culminated 7 months of intensive trainings and individual mentoring.


The program, made possible by the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), focused on equipping youth with soft and hard skills to achieve their personal action plans. More than 200 Tunisian youth from both Ibn Khaldun and Hrairia neighborhoods benefitted from the trainings, and have emerged with stronger skills as well as clear career paths, individual action plans in order to make a change in their lives aiming for success.


'forUs' consisted first of hard skills trainings of ICT , 3D Printing, Business English and Accounting for 3 months followed by 3 months of professional development along the career paths of Employment and Entrepreneurship, including intensive individualized career counseling. Zeeshan Hashmi, the Founder of OYOHO thanked MEPI for making this project possible and added, “Everyone worked extremely hard to attain the highest standards in graduating from the trainings and each participant now stands ready to achieve their career objectives.”


Indeed, the trainings have already begun to show results. Well over 30% of the participants are now gainfully employed, and the rest are taking measured steps towards success. Additionally, many are well on their way to starting their own businesses, as varied as online retail, event planning, and a 3D printing franchise. One 'forUs' graduate, Meriem Selim explains, “I have now learned what went wrong and why was it hard for me to find a job before I enrolled in ‘forUs’. Today, I have more skills and I can set my career goals and achieve them.”


OYOHO continues to support each of the 'forUs' graduates as they enter the job market and strives to expand our programs to benefit youth in other areas as well.
