Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
3 years ago,when I started my club "club of young chemists", a classmate kept coming to our club in the university after courses and asking if we have any activities,anything to do with us where he can be a part of it. but at that time we were not active,we were looking for sponsors and financial resources to start. Few weeks later, he joined ISIS for Jihad and was killed.what if someone gave him "an opportunity" to express him self, an other road to walk through it ?I couldn't make a difference 3 years ago. But now, with my foundation many students will be engaged in the social-cultural life in their universities.Protecting 1 student from being an easy target for brainwashing and radicalization,for me is a big achievement.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
To date, based on my experience of 3 years as sponsoring manager in many clubs and associations, I am coaching and mentoring students in universities clubs how to find sponsors for their projects, simply because without financial resources, their projects will just still dreams on papers!
To date, in my university,the number of students engaged in different clubs, increases day after day.
If I succeed to protect one student from brainwashing and recruitment with ISIS,for me it's a big achievement. Through this project, I aim to encourage students to be engaged in the civic life, to be effective in the society and to strengthen their sens of belonging to our country.
We are working from our position as students leaders,to decrease the number of students joining ISIS.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
-Using the same terrorists' strategy to recruit youth, is our strategy! using social media to"recruit" universities'students in our foundation!
-making a database of Universities alumni in my country,to gather them and convince then to invest in their "old"universities through funding universities clubs.
-Terrorism in Tunisia has targeted recently the tourism sector, whether the attack of Bardo museum or the attack of The hotel in Sousse, so I started meeting and talking with many businessmen and hotels owners (the most damaged) to be engaged in this project by funding universities clubs.
