The United Nations with the support of local partners in Libya have organised training workshops to teach cadres from the cities of Tawergha and Misrata psychological and psychosocial support methods. The cadres will then be a part of a centre which delivers psychological support to locals in the two cities.
Following the return of Tawerghans, who have been displaced from their city for over 7 years, the Tawergha Education Office set up a prefabricated school, which will welcome students at the start of the new academic year.
Libyans displaced from Tawergha are hoping that they can return home after the signing of the reconciliation pact with the town of Misrata. However many of them are now discovering that the route home is filled with obstacles and hardships.
The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) met with representatives of the two Libyan towns of Tawergha and Misrata to discuss the removal of mines from Tawergha in order to ensure a safe return of the Tawerghan's back to their town.
Despite the poor conditions that are prevalent in the city of Tawergha, in Libya many local residents are returning home following years of displacement. This comes after the peace agreement that Tawerghan officials made with officials from the town of Misrata.
After reaching an agreement on the return of over 40,000 displaced Tawarghans, the residents of the two cities in Libya have begun the first phases of reconciliation by joining each other in mosques for iftar.
