Emel, the wonderful Tunisian protest singer, poet and composer, discovered in 2012 at the Babel Med Festival by the Orange Foundation, surprised us one more time during her most recent come back in Tunis. In 2013, after singing at the La Cigale concert hall in Paris on January 28th, she performed on Sunday, May 5th in Tunis for the 3rd anniversary of Orange Tunisia, subsidiary of the Orange Group. The company organized this special evening concert to celebrate the anniversary, and to present the first “Village” project in Tunisia in Bir Salah. Emel Mathlouthi, gave her beautiful and fairy voice to support this beautiful humanitarian cause.
To help set-up a Village Project in Ivory Coast, the Orange Côte d’Ivoire Telecom Foundation asked several government ministries to sit on a special Village Project steering committee: Infrastructure, Health, Education, Family and Children, Environment, and Interior. This committee chaired by Patrick Achi, Minister of Economic Infrastructure, provided the Foundation with a list of the most vulnerable villages with at least 2000 habitants that have no school or health infrastructures, and no clean water.
A project team was also formed, including a consultant specialising in project management, a design and engineering firm and the Foundation team.
Starting point: an existing village in Côte d’Ivoire.
