About the founder

Founder

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am Mohamed Béchir Talbi from TUNISIA. I am aged 66 (2013), actually retired. I hold a postgraduate degree in nautical science granted by the French Maritime Administration (1974). I have been seafarer since my youth. At 30, I joined the Tunisian Transportation Board where, until 2007, I carried out many duties related to maritime transport. Actually, I am a qualified ESL teacheer as well. You know, it is not easy to step into the third age! I do say that I have been really anxious about what this retirement time will be.

Preparatory stages

Through the internet, I have found out a Cambodian NGO seeking for a Librarian. I applied for the position and finally on June 2007, I joined “Seametrey Of Cambodia “ in Phnom Penh where they are running a Montessori kindergarten. I stayed there one year. In particular, I set up the library and trained a young Cambodian to take over.

On November 2008, I went to “Mukti Niketan-Bhagalpur”, a Bihari NGO/Northern India where I stayed six months. This NGO is engaged in village development work, as well as in multifarious activities for the benefit of the needy poor such as programmes for the upliftment of women and children, initiatives to develop schools, medical clinics, vocational and training, self help groups. There, I have taught children English and I have taken part in field visits and meetings to monitor the implementation of rural projects.

ASSISTOR-NPO

Through these actions, I felt that in our “Third World” NGOs are doing an important job. These NGOs face many challenges and also they have many needs, in particular assistance by skilled people to carry out various duties: teaching, office management, project management, raising fund, etc.

In addition, I wanted to put my future actions into a consistent frame, and instead of going standalone, I decided to set up an adequate structure so that others could possibly act for the better.

And it is at this stage that comes ASSISTOR-NPO.

We are a not-for-profit organization and, as a development assistance association, we seek to provide advice and expertise to not-for-profit sector especially in the “Third World”, to improve the contribution this sector can make to address challenges faced by local communities.

ASSISTOR-NPO is independent from political, religious or business interests and maintains its independence by completely funding and operating its programs with the practical and monetary contributions of volunteers and donors.

We believe that the non merchant sector is really in a position to support disadvantaged communities and their members in the process of achieving sustainable development, social justice and peace.

We believe also that a lot of success stories can be achieved through cooperation, dialogue, share of knowledge and experience beyond borders, colors and nationalities.

Philosophy

Trustfulness and credibility

We recognise that trust and confidence must drive our relation with our partners and society in general. Hence, ASSISTOR-NPO will endeavour to bring appropriate and safe public benefits when carrying out its aims and purposes.

A change for a more sustainable future

We believe that non profit community has a prominent role to play in the establishment of a sustainable future. We consider that it shares the responsibility of providing the appropriate efforts to achieve this goal. Governments can't do everything at the same time, nor can NPOs. Cooperative relationships between non profits organizations, the public sector and the business community is a point of a paramount significance to start a "New Age".

Commitment to service and mission

Commitment to service is among our principles. Hence, we shall endeavor to deliver to all our partners services in line with good practices and ethical standards. Also, we shall share our knowledge and work as facilitator so that our colleagues get better chances to implement their programs and meet their aspirations.

Centrality of people to the organizational mission

In our view, commitment to people is a central issue to achieve an organization's objectives and aspirations. Organizational success depends on valuing people contribution and promoting an inclusive work environment for optimal development effectiveness. Therefore, more empowerment has to be granted to development professionals, in particular those delivering their mission in the "Transitional World", to make their work more efficient.
