Tunisia: Peace Volunteers
The youth are volunteering for peace in Monastir, Tunisia!
Monastir is a city in Tunisia that is well-known for its beautiful beaches, clean air and hospitable people. It is also the home-base for a very active MasterPeace club, led by Mister Bechir Selmi. This inspiring man has been actively working with young people of Tunisia since 1983, using culture and sports to raise awareness about societal issues, advocating education and propagating civil engagement among the youth. Read more about his work here.
This time however, we would like to shine the spotlight on the young volunteers that surround him on a day-to-day basis. These students spend most of their free time at MasterPeace, preparing, organising and carrying out local, national and international events. They do everything from raising funds to dancing on the streets with children. We are most impressed and proud to see how they keep on mobilizing their peers and work towards a more peaceful Tunisia for everyone.
Here is the video of the Walk of Peace, a huge event that the team organized in April, 2018:
