Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 07 Nov,2013
The 2011 Arab spring has brought with it new opportunities for young Arabs, aspiring for democratic change and freedom, to make their countries a better place to live. A group of young individuals have taken the task of creating a newspaper in Tunisia. The Tunis Times is Tunisia's first Internet newspaper. At The Tunis Times, we believe there's an alarming gap between Tunisia and the rest of the world in terms of news coverage and we intend to fill in that gap.
The Tunis Times was founded on 26th of March, 2013 by Amen JLILI. The team have been expanded to welcome more than 22 writers and editors (Nada, Sana, Colin, Mariam and many others you don't know ;) ...) from Tunisia, Britain and the United States. All students, All volunteers!
We're young but we are determined!
We're now operating a news website around the clock in efforts to cover news about Tunisia and Northern Africa in a wide range of topics.
We've made a tremendous amount of progress so far. Major media outlets are quoting from The Tunis Times as we continue to build a reliable and insightful news site.
RFI, The huffingtonpost, NPR, Examiner and many other sites continue to quote Tunis Times brewed articles. We had privilege of publishing several opinion articles the UN and the British Embassy in Tunis. The Tunis Times is part of the Google news programme.
We enjoy conducting interviews with politicians, economic experts just to make our readers a notch ahead of the others.
The Tunis Times has a present existence in the social media sphere. With a Facebook page of 1.2K and more than a 100 twitter followers, we love interacting with our fans and we're very active socially ;)
