SAARA

Sharing our knowledge, strengthening our actions

Since the 90’s, Algerian organizations are very committed around the questions of access to rights for the most vulnerable people, especially in the social field. Progressively, they have built a real ‘savoir-faire’ and reliability in the eyes of the populations and local authorities.

Nevertheless, these organizations are often still not involved in local development politics and they have difficulties sustaining their actions in the long term.

SAARA project aims at promoting Algerian organizations’ key role and encouraging their integration into local dialogue process.

Pooling resource to make its own business successful in Mediterranean area

All around the world, economic inequalities between women and men are still very strong. Yet, many studies explain the importance of women’s status and the role they have to play for developing an equal and inclusive society.

Working for more than 10 years with our Mediterranean partners (Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt), we helped them implement several projects aiming at improving the status of women through their social and economic integration. Many women already benefit from trainings and/or create their own income-generating activity.

With our partners, we are now focusing on the formalization of those micro-companies thanks to the implementation of collective enterprises. The entrepreneurs are then able to share resources and skills, ensure the sustainability of their activities and benefit from social advantages such as social security. As the entrepreneurs share skills and pool resource, they can better ensure the sustainability of their business and benefit from social care. Meanwhile, an action-research approach will contribute to promoting the efficiency and relevance of the micro-companies’ supporting process to public authorities.

FORM’Algérie

Empowering Algerian organizations

During Algeria’s black decade (the 90’s), the associative movement was very much weakened. For the past ten years, the civil society organisations are making their voices heard again, and many others have emerged in the social field. Their actions are essential to face the urgent issues on the field, even though they often don’t last because of volunteers’ turnover and lack of resources.

Through the FORM’Algérie project, we provide training intended for civil society organisations. Throughout the first project’s period, young associative managers were trained to become trainers as well. Today, they are able to train other organisations working in their respective local area (Adrar, Algiers, Akbou, Constantine, El Oued and Oran).

Achieved in February 2016, those actions continue through the SAARA project.

Supporting young people towards associative sector jobs

In Algeria, the 18-35 years-old generations represent 70% of the national population and are much more affected by unemployment than the older generations. Almost 1 over 4 young people don’t have a job, even though the unemployment rate of the entire active population is about 10%. Poverty and the informal economy are increasing whereas the associative sector’s potential in terms of professional integration is still unknown and underestimated by young Algerian people.

However, working within civil society organizations demands many skills (administrative and financial management, project coordination, socio-educative mediation…) that can serve a lot of business fields like renewable energies, professional training, digital technologies, tourism, sports and leisure or even health. Those activity sectors have been identified as priorities by the Algerian government and they are precisely the activity sectors Algerian organizations have invested. Identified by the Algerian government as priority sectors for employment, these sectors are precisely the ones in which numerous Algerian associations are most renowned for.

In partnership with the GRDR and two local organizations, we have been working since 2016 to support local initiatives in Oran and Khenchela. We have notably working on the creation of a toolkit on associative jobs and a directory for organizations. This approach aims at clarifying professional opportunities in the associative sector and at promoting its different jobs for young people and the Algerian employment structures.
