We are a non-profit organization that advocates for the inclusion of people who are blind and visually impaired in Germany and Tunisia. The organization made it its mission to promote inclusivity through various methods.
Our long-term goal is to build an education and culture center in Kairouan that offers inclusive learning and leisure activities. We are currently also working on creating an inclusive culture garden on an 800m² plot of land.
From the very beginning blind and visually impaired people were highly involved in the design process to ensure accessibility for all. Various inclusive workshops on garden design and environmental education have already been carried out for this very purpose.
Help with Eco Projects
- unique cultural exchange in the heart of Tunisia (Kairouan)
- partake in enriching experiences all around the city
- inclusive learning projects with blind and visually impaired individuals
We are in need of your help with future garden design as well as landscape maintenance. This includes sustainable plant cultivation according to permaculture techniques, the creation of barefoot sensory paths, and further maintenance with the use of compost. We also appreciate outside input, ideas, and other suggestions in order to create this inclusive culture garden.
You will be provided with a small apartment in the education and culture center in the old town in Kairouan (the center is currently still in renovation).
The garden is a walking distance away from the accommodation.
The apartment you will be provided with has an equipped kitchen. The closest convenience store is a 5-minute walk away from your accommodation. Bigger supermarkets are also located within your vicinity.
Kairouan is a historic and rich architectural UNESCO world heritage site. You will therefore have plenty of opportunities for educational sightseeing. The city has various public transit opportunities to other cities all over Tunisia.
The country is rich in culture and food and the people of Tunisia are very welcoming.
