Tunis, June 19, 2020: DCAF organized a working session with the Ministry of Women, Family, Children and Seniors (MFFES), and more particularly Minister Asma Shiri, ministerial officials and CREDIF members to explore avenues to strengthen their partnership.

 

A bilateral think tank will soon be created with the objective of defining the framework and the lines of collaboration. It is at all events agreed that the DCAF makes available to the MFFES its expertise network in matters of protection of children and women and supports the general directorate of child protection and the national observatory to combat violence against women.

 

This cooperation is funded through the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA). The Fund is financed actually by Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Further information on DCAF is available on the DCAF website or on the DCAF Tunisia website.
