Parallel to its online outreach campaigns, The Munathara initiative works closely with local and regional civil society organisations. Munathara’s certified outreach debate trainers provide on the ground training sessions to Arabic speakers both within and outside the MENA region, especially focusing on marginalised and rural areas.
Today, The Munathara Outreach program is operational in 15 countries including Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Yemen, Sudan, Mauritania and Iraq. In addition to including youth, women, and marginalized communities, the Munathara Initiative seeks to involve the voices of Arabic speaking refugee and migrant communities outside the MENA region through our work in Turkey, France and Germany.
The training curriculum invites trainees to learn the value of debate, how to constructively discuss divergent opinions, and how to shape public discourse, in addition to media skills. At the end of each session, participants are invited to submit a 99-second video in response to a proposed Munathara competition debate motion which is later introduced to the corresponding Munathara musabaqa (competition).
