The “Amal” association cooperates closely with the German-Tunisian Centre. Their common objective: advising, supporting and training women in difficult situations.
"Every year, about 100 women learn a trade with us," says Hajer, director of Amal’s vocational training centre. "Before the courses, we post calls for participation on the Facebook page of the association and the CTA." Participants included women from sub-Saharan Africa who had become victims of human traffickers during their flight and who were stranded in Tunisia.
Hajer has been running the centre since 2018; it has been part of "Amal" since 2003. Due to her previous work in a women's shelter, Hajer is particularly familiar with the plight of single mothers. They are rejected by society and often by their own families and are left to cope alone. That is why it is so important that the association offers much more than vocational training.
