Safir is an ambitious program in favour of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) achievement and in favour of the economic inclusion of youth. It is deployed in 9 countries of North Africa and Middle East (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Palestine, Tunisia). Supported by the European Union under the Program to support youth and culture in the Southern Neighbourhood, it aims to create an environment conducive to the citizen engagement of youth, and to promote the development of projects, which have a social, cultural and environmental impact.

Safir is based on 3 pillars: Provide support to more than 1000 young project holders; Structure and develop a regional network of support actors; and Create spaces for dialogue between youth and public authorities.
