Tunisia

Overview

Stand on the highest peak in Tunisia, the smallest country in North Africa, and you can view the panoramic beauty of the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the vast expanses of the Sahara Desert to the south (and as the crow flies, Italy is close by, just across the sea).

In a country of contrasts, farmers use the simplest agricultural techniques to grow fruits, vegetables, and grains, yet cell phones, the Internet, and Facebook are changing the way Tunisians interact with and view the world. For the first time in their history, Tunisia’s large young adult population (60% under the age of 30) is interested in exploring life outside their borders. Consider your place in being a strategic answer to an entire generation’s questions about what brings meaning to life.
