Time in Tunisia

The trip to Tunis was a trip of a lifetime due to three factors:        

- the project and youth running the project  

- the larger framework that we are working within

- Tunisia is a magical place with an incredible emerging youth innovation culture



Intl Connector has been attached to the pilot project happening in Tunisia as the Advisory Project Managers.  We have been working with a team of University Students to create a proposal for funding with IEEE to bring the internet (hardware, workshops and cultural education) to two schools in Tunisia.  We are going to lead the proposal writing for a second grant from IEEE to bring this same project to 24 schools in Tunisia as well as creating regional innovation hubs








Marti was proud to see the #Tawasol team present their work to the teachers and parents...and to hear the reactions and support from the community for this brilliant program bringing access to the internet and coding skills to elementary schools. #AmazingTunisia IEEE Tunisia Section SIGHT IEEE People Centered Internet "Tawasol" means Connectivity in Arabic
