Being mindful of the historicity of the Tamkeen Process is about looking at a process’ evolution in time and how it reflects in the mirror of how we define ourselves and what we do as well as in the mirror of global discourses on education, systems change and development. It is also about understanding the subtle interplays of time, context, place, momentum, process velocity as well the interplay of local and systemic.
Revisiting Tamkeen’s historicity is a way to continuously rediscover our own actuality and narrative. This allows us to go deeper into our comprehension and, at the same time, broader in our self-perception and proprioception with the full humility and understanding of our responsibility.

Our Nia is the wind that blows the sails of our governance model.
The essence of the essence of the Tamkeen Approach, Love, blows the wind, is and weaves the fabric of our sails and flows the ocean that we navigate.
Our guiding constellations are our growing shared understanding of our human potential – the potential to trust our humanity – and the understanding of our understanding.
Our direction is “A Humanizing Society“, a process that embodies its own meaning and end. The experienced transformation is metamorphic in nature referring to its embeddedness in the immanence of our human, community and societal potential. This is what we call societal metamorphosis.
‘Our Direction is A Humanizing Society’
We co-facilitate the self-facilitation processes of our team and of our partners and we cocreate the conditions with our partners for the emergence of Community Based Learning and Understanding Ecosystems (CBLUES).
The “softness” of the Tamkeen facilitation allows an organic growth and a flowing movement of resonance. It entails playfulness, finding the ease together in the pressure, sensing the propensity and the path that all are willing to learn to walk together whilst paving it and facilitating the co-reflection on what is, individually and collectively, experienced. Challenges become the opportunities to together uncover and discover.
Our dissonances become friends to befriend. Methodologies become an embodied understanding. Tools and techniques become playful games. The facilitator becomes the facilitation. Scaling becomes the facilitation of a process of diffusion. We delight in wonder to see how “action” becomes learning to facilitate “what is coming by itself”.
We facilitate the self-facilitated processes of our partners.
The focus of attention of our facilitation is oriented by our growing awareness of systems’ interconnectedness, interdependence and propensity.
Our navigation astrolabe dilates our perception and expands our gaze. Its coordinates move with the growth of our shared understanding with our partners and the understanding of our understanding. They are informed by the continuous co-reflection of our experiences, our Recognition & Appreciation System, our Open Research Ecosystem and the ongoing Socio-Systemic Complexity Evaluation (the mirror to the mirror).
Our navigation astrolabe has coordinates that move with the growth of our shared understanding with our partners and the understanding of our understanding.
We mindfully strive for our organization to be an embodiement of our Nia. Hence we learn together with our partners to weave coherence and experience what it means that the unit of the structure of life and the flowing energy of our organization is the essence of the Tamkeen Approach (love freed from conditions, trust in our human potential, trust in our humanity and epistemic humility).
The institutional model and legal framework that facilitated our institutional coherence are a not-for profit “community foundation”. We are free from any affiliations (political, religious, …). We seek for the confluence, where we can all meet in our shared humanity.
We learn together with our partners to weave coherence.
