“Kolna Kesra” project: SSE projects to be launched soon in Kesra

Social and Solidarity-based Economy (SSE) projects will be launched starting from December as part of the achievement of the Kolna Kesra project, the Kolna Tounes association said Friday in a press release.

Four projects were preselected following training cycles for young project holders that started in February 2017.

The 1st project aims to set up the Dar Hlima guest house, a first in Kesra (Siliana governorate) whose construction works are well under way.

The 2nd project provides for promoting and marketing organic fig jam, the 3rd project aims to set up a traditional restaurant to promote north-western products and the 4th project consists in launching an agency specialised in the organization of sports, cultural and environmental events, the press release specified.

Another project dedicated to craftsmen in the weaving field will also be launched to create and market a set of 100% natural weaving products labelled Kusira. This project will be achieved in co-operation with Switzerland’s Embassy to Tunisia. A 1st sample will be presented in December, the same source added.

With a view to encouraging the SSE and promoting local products, a point of sale of handcrafted products related to the region’s heritage, will be inaugurated in 2018 in Kesra.

The Kolna Kesra project, launched and initiated by the Kolna Tounes association and supported by the European Union Office to Tunisia, seeks to reinforce the civil society’s role in the SSE entrepreneurship and improve living conditions in inland regions by creating projects in hotel trade and crafts fields and promoting the region’s cultural and tourism heritage.
