Professional training and integration for young people in Casablanca, Marrakech and Safi

Country/place
Morocco, Casablanca, Marrakech, Safi

A third of the 35 million population of Morocco are under the age of 25. Unemployment is over 10% and effects many young people between 15 and 24 years of age, with up to 42,8% of people unemployed in this age range in urban areas.

The urban centres of Casablanca, Marrakech and Safi, flooded by young people arriving from rural areas are especially effected by this phenomenon.

Support to these young people without any formal qualification is urgently needed offering vocational training and access to employment since they represent a real force for the country’s economic development if harnessed effectively.

Project objectives:

  • Social and economic integration of young people between the age of 15 and 30
  • Develop model for entrepreneurship in Casablanca
  • Improve the teaching practices of Moroccan partners
  • Help Moroccan partners diversify funding streams
