This time, to reach out to a wider audience, the team decided to participate to the “New Tunisia Days” Event (JTN)* held at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM).
The event ran from March 31 to April 4, 2011, and brought together more than 700 guests around conferences, photo exhibits and a concert of a popular artist and revolutionary activist from Tunisia, known as Bendir Man. The 4 day event focused on the revolution of Tunisia, its stages and its challenges.
On April 2, TunisiEntraide’s team, rolled up its sleeves in the kitchen and pulled out the best cake recipes to for the bake sale. The guests, who were mainly from the Tunisian community in Montreal and “friends of Tunisia” in Quebec, were delighted to get to know the dynamic members of TunisiEntraide and inquire about its mission. Flyers promoting the mission and goals of the organization, along with a project “two-pager” describing the projects to be funded in Tunisia were distributed to most of the visitors, who supported the cause and generously donated money to support it.
In a nutshell: it was a great event full of nice meetings and interesting discussions. The guests expressed their heartfelt encouragements to TunisiEntraide’s mission and efforts. A total amount of 687 $ was raised from the bake sale initiative.
* Karim Rmadi from Avant-scene Production and the “ Collectif tunisien pour la liberté et la démocratie en Tunisie” hosted the event.
TMarch 12, 2011- To celebrate its official launch as a non-profit organization, TunisiEntraide invited a group of Tunisians and some friends of Tunisia, to a lablabi* party.The party took place at Kahwa cafe, located at 263 Mont-Royal Street. The purpose of the party was to officially announce the launch of TunisiEntraide and to raise funds for socio-economic projects in deprived regions in Tunisia that were neglected and forgotten by the former regime.
TunisEntraide hosted and celebrated the event in a warm and joyful atmosphere. After enjoying the food, guests made generous donations and expressed support and enthusiasm towards the ambitious action plan presented by the association. The party generated a net profit of nearly $ 2500, which will be entirely allocated to fund projects being currently prospected in South-’West Tunisia, a region characterized by high levels of poverty and unemployment.
The association seeks funding for projects that would improve the living conditions of poor communities. Several projects are being evaluated, such as building or restoring schools, digging wells in communities who do not have access to drinking water, equipping local clinics to improve access to health services, etc.
Projects in the field will be implemented in partnership with local Tunisian associations legally recognized in Tunisia, who fulfill TunisiEntraide’s selection criteria. A permanent representative of TunisiEntraide in Tunisia will monitor the progress made on projects in the field to ensure rigor and transparency to donors.
The first TunisiEntraide event was a great success and a lot of fun for organizers and guests. Great musicians set the mood and kept the party going until dawn. Hassan El Hadi, a lute player and Moroccan singer and his wife, a skilled drummer made attendees dance to the beat of inflamed darbuka.
* Lablabi is a popular Tunisian dish made from chick peas, bread and cumin flavored broth. Bread is cut into small pieces and served in a bowl. It is then covered with chickpeas broth, then seasoned and mixed with a sauce made of harissa, cumin, olive oil and salt and pepper. To everyone’s taste, capers, olives, vegetables could be added. The whole is then covered with tuna or soft boiled egg and sprinkled with lemon juice or vinegar.
