– The special prize of the jury Enactus Tunisia to the team of the Higher Institute of Nursing Sciences of Tunis (ISSIT).

“Launched in 2009 within the Tunisian University in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education, Enactus Tunisia’s principle is to bring together a team of students representing an academic institution in order to carry out a social entrepreneurship project”, President of Enactus Tunisia, Khaoula Khedimy Boussama told TAP.

Enactus Tunisia, which is considered to be the first social entrepreneurship programme in the Tunisian University, has succeeded in impacting more than 50 public and private higher education schools and more than 3,500 students, including 54% are girls, “she said.

She said that the programme has also succeeded in targeting more than 14 regions and reaching out to several sectors, including Crafts, Service, Textiles and Agriculture.

During the ceremony, the Minister of Higher Education commended the programme as a “quality programme” insofar as it promotes the spirit of social entrepreneurship among students.

In this context, he pointed out that his department had already begun introducing the social entrepreneurship programme in Tunisian universities, citing in this sense centres of careers and certification of competences (4C) which is a connected structure to the higher education institution, whose mission is to support students and graduates, with a view to facilitating their integration into the labour market.

“We have succeeded in setting up more than 50 career centres in several universities and our goal is to reach 100 centres by the end of this year,” he added.
