Project Objectives

Encourage the employment of women and young people through self-employment and the development of the solidarity economy.


Leave behind the negative experiences of cooperation carried out until the 80s of the last century, nowadays Tunisia shows a growing interest in the social and solidarity economy, with the support of local unions. It is thanks to the collaboration with UGTT, the Tunisian trade union, which created this project aiming to promote self-employment of young people and women in various economic sectors (tourism, crafts, food processing). The project involves the implementation of a training program looking at local trainers and cooperatives as a result of unemployed young people and women, with the goal of creating at least 5 new cooperatives. The project also envisages the creation of a fund for start-ups by cooperatives formed by the participants in the training courses.

In particulary the activity implemented by Legacoop Emilia Romagna:

  • A mission of an expert of cooperative promotion and an expert of fishery sector for a visibility study for the creation of a fishery cooperative; support in the development of a business plan for the establishment of the fishery cooperative EL ETIHAD; mission of an agricultural expert to support the agricultural cooperative COCEBLE.
