We often wonder what kind of planet we will leave to our children – but what kind of children will we leave to the planet?
Why Kenitra Project?
what we would like to achieve is to give every child the best chance to reach their full potential and make sure that the community will have the key role to play and be aware how education can change their life.
We believe that the challenge is not only to build schools, provide training to the teachers or take children to schools, but is to ensure that they stay there and reach their goal of positively changing the life of the local community.
Children of parents with low income are often considered as workforce since they can enhance the income of the family. They often don’t see the benefit of sending their children to school since they often haven’t had this chance themselves or the return value is much longer term.
For this reason, we think that it’s important to promote the education in the community and ensure that everyone (community, teachers, governor,…) will have a role to play.
Education for All
Moroccan children attend primary schools for six years between the age of six and twelve. In the Imlil valley, the schooling infrastructures are not sufficient to provide the local children of pre-school age the opportunity of having a preliminary education and an education of quality.
In Morocco, education is provided in Arabic. Providing the Berber-speaking children of Imlil with the possibility of attending preliminary school is the best way to prepare them for primary education by developing the basic literacy and numeric skills as well as getting familiar with the Arabic language.
At Imlil, only 4 out of 10 children finish the primary cycle, sometimes without knowing how to read and write.
Empower the local community
Financial participation: The community will donate some of their land to build the preschool. (100m ² – a value of 5000 euro).
Community Involvement: The goal is that the community manages the project and the teacher. A village association consisting of villagers will be created. Preschool education becomes a community project managed by the community to give their children the best chance of success.
Participation of local authorities
Preschool education is now recognised by the National Ministry of Education as the first stage of the primary cycle but it is not yet supported by the government. However, agreements have been signed with the delegation of education for the training of educators and ensure
