Surrounded by vacant lots in a suburb of Tunis called El Kram, the Center for Self-Employment Training and Promotion (CFPT) is rather unremarkable. Situated next to the El Kram Technical High School, its location says a good deal about the extent to which we value vocational training. Several two-story buildings house the administration and classrooms, large warehouses containing machinery used during practical courses, a coffee stand that is swamped during break times, and a cafeteria that serves food for free.
