The students at Lycee El-Esteklal in Manouba, Tunisia investigated the important issue of learning conditions with The Urban Assembly Bronx Academy of Letters in Bronx, New York, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We have chosen this topic because of the horrible conditions of learning in most Tunisian primary schools. Many tunisian pupils are denied the right of a decent education, which is the root to major problems in Tunisia which can lead to terrorism, illegal migration, drugs, and violence.”
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. It is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
