People with special needs in Tunisia are often lacking access to their rights of equality, work and education which exclude them from being active and appreciated in society. ACT wants to see a shift in Tunisian society to be one of inclusion and dignity for people with disabilities. Our focus is to promote professional, educational, and familial inclusion. We also aim to reinforce the capacity of our partners through forming local partnerships, building networks and capacity building programs.

About Disability

Dr Steve Green on the Francophone Palliative Care Congress

“This was such a good advert for Tunisia. One main speaker from Quebec apologised on behalf of his compatriots for not coming because of fears of security. The participants are going away with very positive opinions of Tunisia. For all this we praise God.”
