TWM is a feminist organization aims to research, report and advocate on the intersectional gender issues amongst indigenous groups, particularly Tamazight women in Libya. TWM vision is to establish an academic and social think/do tank on indigenous women of Libya. The core values of TWM are gender equality, social justice and diversity of race, class, ability, age, and ethnicity. These values are stemmed from the current situation of women rights in Libya and MENA regions, TWM values are meant to challenge these inequalities and injustices.
In 2016, TWM received a funding from the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives, started the project “women’s participation in local governance and fighting gender based violence”, the project consisted of a capacity building training to female municipal members and civil society actors. The other aspect was awareness on the topic, flyers, posters and videos made for distribution on social media.
Currently (2017-2020), TWM is co-leading "Youth and Women as Peace Bridge Builders" program with two Dutch partners and one local partner in Libya. The program is focused on UNSCR 1325 and to strengthen the resilience of civil society organizations working on women, youth, peace and security agenda.
