As we celebrate Women’s Month, we renew our commitment to supporting women’s economic and social empowerment. US Embassy Charge d’Affaires Natasha Franceschi joined Tunis Mayor Souad Abderrahim and Governor Kamel Fekih to inaugurate two renovated public spaces in the historic Medina funded by USAID – US Agency for International Development as part of the Femme Medina program. Chargé d’Affaires Franceschi visited the craftswomen in Bab Souika square and the women’s training center in Sidi Bechir where the municipality of Tunis is working with local women to turn this space into an inclusive place to promote greater economic and social opportunities for women. This $500,000 USD initiative supports the creation of a training center, an exhibition to display handicrafts, an outdoor library, a playground and a public park in Medina Tunis to generate new economic opportunities for women.
