D-Jil supports new projects

June 24, 2019

The second D-JIL incubation session took place in Jordan from 13 to 15 June 2019. It brought together the project managers selected during the second call for applications in April, in order to train them and help them to move forward with their initiatives.

This three-day seminar, of which there will be a further four during the course of the project, was held at the Deewan Institute, an institute of languages and cultural studies in Amman, Jordan. The training, which focused on the management of European projects and information and communication technologies, was provided by Hamza Dridi and Francesca Valli (CFI), Colin Verot (independent consultant) and Malek Khadhraoui (Inkyfada/Al Khatt). The latter was particularly noteworthy, since he shared his experience as a former recipient of a similar grant: an inspiring example for all those present.v

These projects are :

- LE .31, Algéria
- FEEL, Palestine
- MEN LEWEEL, Morocco
- EL HOURRIA, Morocco
- SAMANDALIOUNE, Lebanon
- MEGAPHONE-LEBANESE ECONOMY VIDEO SERIES, Lebanon
- HABKA'ARK, Libya

The next incubation session, which will bring together all of the eighteen projects selected, will be held in Lebanon at the end of September with a view to supporting these initiatives throughout their development.

Co-financed by the European Union and supported by CFI, in partnership with the Samir Kassir Foundation, FMAS, IREX Europe and Leaders of Tomorrow, D-JIL fosters active citizenship and autonomy in young people in nine Arab world countries, using online media as a vehicle.
