"Offering young people a sustainable and fair alternative to discover the region of Jendouba, this is my goal since I enrolled in the master's degree in hotel and tourism management.
After finishing my studies and accumulating some small experiences in the hotel management sector, I took the direction of the family business Discovery Youth Hostel, on the heights of Ain Draham. We started to work on improving the comfort of stay of the visitors starting with the sanitary and hygienic facilities and the inauguration of a camping area in order to diversify our activities when the covid-19 struck.
We made the effort to maintain our staff despite the fact that we were forced to close the hotel café. We also took advantage of the closure to upgrade the rooms and add decorations.
I heard about the COVID-19 Business Recovery Grant Fund established by the US government through its Tunisia JOBS program on social media.
I applied with a view to equipping a gym that we would like to open to complement the offer we have and to attract local customers."
