In partnership with the U.S. Government Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), We Youth organization held a press conference on January 18 in Sfax to launch their We Vote project that aims to train 72 volunteers (two from each municipality) to 1) increase their knowledge about elections and learn how to effectively reach out to citizens during the election period; (2) deploy the volunteers in the governorates of Sfax and Gabes to educate 30,000 potential voters with a special focus on women and youth; and (3) train and deploy 120 observers to monitor elections in the selected municipalities. We Youth partnered with 11 local partners from Sfax and Gabes to monitor the electoral promises of candidates.  Stay Tuned for more updates on the #WeYouth activities of this #MEPI project.
