After three successful past editions, the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab Association (EMA e.V.) launches the 2019 Ouissal Entrepreneur Women Mentoring Programme.

The Ouissal Women Entrepreneur Mentoring Programme was initiated by the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab Association (EMA e.V.), member of ASCAME, and is sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Ouissal's main objective is to support the socioeconomic participation of women in their home countries.

This Mentoring Programme concentrates on creating tandems of both experienced and young women entrepreneurs who work together on business development plans and strategies for a year. This way, the experienced mentor can share her knowledge and expertise while the mentee has the opportunity to learn and get support of skilled entrepreneurs in an intercultural context.  

40 German, Tunisian and Moroccan female entrepreneurs are selected every year for participating in this programme. In addition, Ouissal participants get the chance to attend the German-Arab Women Forum, which gives them also access to the German-Arab Women’s Network: a platform aimed at fostering the connection with other female entrepreneurs and numerous partner organisations.

ASCAME congratulates its member, the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab Association, for this wonderful initiative and encourages its women entrepreneur network to seize this great opportunity.
