In 2021, the program "Change your Classroom" carried by L'Art Rue since 2012 becomes "Qismi al Ahla - Creating the best classroom democratically". The aim is to transfer the skills and experience of our organisation to civil society associations in the Tunisian regions to help them create safe spaces and an enabling environment in public primary schools for the development and emancipation of children.

Three associations in the governorates of Ben Arous, Jendouba and Médenine have been selected to benefit from the programme to strengthen their technical and organisational capacities as well as financial support for the implementation of "Qismi al Ahla" in 3 public primary schools.

In the governorate of Ben Arous, the association "Borj Cedria de demain" intervened in the public primary school Borj Cedria 2. This school has 270 pupils, 20 teachers and 11 classrooms. 

Two adjacent classrooms were transformed and merged to create a large space of approximately 96 m2 dedicated to cultural and artistic activities within the framework of Qismi al Ahla. In convergence with the improvement works undertaken by the Ministry of Education, this will allow the upgrading of the school to accommodate new students.
