Shoukrie I. Shoukrie // Libya

Project Coordinator Assistant, Moomken Youth Organization

Shoukri oversaw the participation of 29 Libyan youth in an  eight week Online Facilitation Dialogue programme during the autumn of 2018 .

“Under the horrors of the Libyan civil war, it was extremely difficult for civil society organisations to provide meaningful exchange opportunities for youth, in order to gain the necessary exposure to diverse perspectives. Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange gave us an innovative approach to reach marginalised youth across the struggling country, and enabled them to overcome the barriers and restrictions imposed by the war. Participants, for the first time, had the chance to interact with their peers in other countries, exchange knowledge and transfer the culture of dialogue into their local communities as a contribution to the peace-building and reconciliation process. 

We look forward to reaching more underprivileged youth and scale up the transformative impact of this programme in the future”
