My activities are focusing on building and mentoring a new category of editors in Tunisia, who are non-normative queer people, thanks to a partnership with Mawjoudin association. For now, we are training members in three cities where Mawjoudin has visibility: Bizerte, Tunis and Sousse. Hopefully, After the corona crisis is over, we will continue conducting the workshops and reach the fourth city, Sfax.

Also through LessanspagEs, I want to enrich the content related to Tunisian people who identify as women, a category that is still very poorly represented in the Tunisian community.

All these workshops are organized by me and usually I am the trainer as well. (For now there is also another member who co-facilitating with me, but she is not alwas available to go to other cities).

And of course, apart of all this, having this computer will allow me to continue editing on Wikipedia (arabic, french, and english)) asy computer is not functional anymore.
