Success is not only achievement. For us, success is sharing the spirit and goals of the SDG camps and working with us to realise those goals, in whatever way you can. Now and in the future. There are numerous ways to participate, including volunteering, sharing your ideas, becoming a mentor, or becoming one of our partners. Many alumnis are still with us, creating changes everyday and that's what we consider success; that's what makes us proud of our work.

Mohamed Ali Raddaoui
Since the Tunisian revolution, Mohamed Ali Raddaoui has been engaged in civic society and volunteering with international organizations such as UNDP and UN Women. He observed the democratic transition of Tunisia and the process of decentralization which made him develop an interest in policy and decision-making.
A valuable experience that he would like to share would be his participation in the national consultation Beijing+25 on gender equality organized by UN Women where he has spoken up about queer rights and gender equality. Today, he decided to pursue a Master in Diplomacy and International relations in addition to his Business Intelligence degree.
