Ahmed Omar Mataouaa

Ahmed Omar Mataouaa, a 57-year old family man, has been a civil servant for years before devoting himself entirely to civil society in 2011. Elected as a municipal council member of Nalout in 2014, he organizes and facilitates trainings. Capacity building of youth is a key issue for him. “I have always been convinced that Libya needed experts and leaders who would handle the needs of society and think about post-conflict thorny issues. After the Revolution, the absence of the state forced us to empower ourselves and that is exactly this mission that has been haunting me for years,” explains Ahmed.
In this perspective and since 2012, Ahmed Matouaa has participated in many trainings and workshops organized by CILG VNG International on various themes. “VNG is very supportive of many municipalities in Libya. At my personal level, I learnt so much working with its experts and participating in its trainings. This is the only organization which understands that the future would only be better with a good local governance,” he concludes.
