Amira is an ambitious, dedicated, and committed Tunisian woman, who believes in the power of transformative education for well-being and peace.

Her ambition is to contribute to the development of the Tunisian educational system for enhanced peace and strengthened societies. She is dedicated to this ambition and her professional career working with national and international organizations helped to widen her horizons about the promising impact of investing in youth positive development.

She is committed to supporting youth to unleash their talents and transform vulnerabilities into opportunities for more peaceful communities.

She has 5 years’ experience managing and coordinating projects for several age groups, and mainly youth following approaches that foster dialogue for social cohesion and violence prevention, gender equity and social inclusion (GESI), youth positive development, leadership, preventing/countering violent extremism (P/CVE), participatory governance, women and vulnerable groups’ empowerment, community development, and rehabilitation of ex-prisoners.  Her orientation towards results-based management motivated her to extend her knowledge on aspects related to monitoring, evaluation, and learning, this was further consolidated by collaboration with Synergy management and consulting.
