In one of the fastest growing cities in North Africa, ethnic and racial tensions run deep in the nearly 100% Muslim environment, especially between Arab and non-Arab peoples. Neighborhoods are primarily comprised of single-story buildings with limited electricity and no running water.
Our team is re-launching the work in an ethnically-mixed community of economic refugees from the countryside on the edge of the city. The team will develop a community business and education center, providing training in several areas including entrepreneurship, vocational skills, sports coaching, public health, as well as after-school programs. We expect this to provide ongoing opportunities to share the Gospel while identifying community leaders with the potential to catalyze broader neighborhood transformation.
