Transnational Corridors e. V.  (TC) is an association, and manages a network of associations with offices in Berlin, Paris and Agadir. In each of these cities a coordinator carries out projects mainly in the education sector and with the help of local managers and public servants of partner institutions. Our partners are ministries, regional governments, public agencies (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, Deutsche Auslandshandelskammer, Académie Régionale Souss-Massa/Agadir) and private foundations (Fondation Elle, Fondation Air France, Fondation Société Générale, Fondation Décathlon, Fondation du Sud). We partner also with commercial companies (IBM, Cap Gemini, Groupe Lagardère-Active, Aksal Social Initiative) and with associations. The yearly budgets varies between 40.000 and 200.000 Euro. We organize personal development workshops, grant scholarships, coach students, organize study travels abroad for disadvantaged students, arrange internships in multinational companies.  

 

Mission and Objectives: 

We promote the social mobility of disadvantaged young people, mainly in North Africa, through their formal and informal education. 

Main Projects / Activities: 

"A bicycle for her" (2006-2012) combats the school dropouts of girls in Moroccan rural areas - the project is going on and carried out now by other associations and public bodies. 

"A career for her" (2012-2018) helps female students of disadvantages community to gain a bachelor degree and to land a job.

"Student Help Desk" (2016-2019) helps students of disadvantaged families in the Province of Tiznit to bridge the information, the knowledge and the financial gaps with better off students.

"The transnational education room" (2016-2019) organizes youth exchange projects between Norh Africa and Europe.

 

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

In the last ten years we have gained a wide experience in the management of transnational projects in the education sector. We'd like to share this experience and knowhow. All the members of our association are bilcultural with shared biographies in North Africa and Europe so that we can contribute to a better mutual understanding between these two regions.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

We want (1) to meet more people who are interested in improving the understanding between the Mena countries and the European countries, (2) to receive new impulses from and maybe give impulses to other organizations with common interests, (3) to meet potential partners with whom we could carry out new projects, (4) to participate in different thematic working groups.
