About

People who wish to go into the future should have skills and abilities to succeed!

Tatweer was a project that aimed at building skills and abilities of young potential leaders in marginalized areas, such as refugee camps and the surrounding areas. In addition, Tatweer contributed to enable the target groups to lead democratization processes.

To achieve this, Tatweer Project worked on enhancing the political and social participation of youth and women, and provided them with safe and responsive platforms.
