The Project “Open University for Citizenship” aims at empowering marginalized communities to increase their awareness and engagement on civic issues, thereby achieving more direct democracy. A diverse network of partners will engage in awareness campaigns, the training, the production of innovative tools, and the mentoring of advocacy initiatives of Moroccan citizens. These actions will target youth, women, and persons with disabilities (PWDs) specifically, as these populations are systematically excluded from civic life and face supplementary challenges.
By acknowledging and supporting citizens’ active role in society, the Project will ultimately contribute to the reinforcement of Morocco’s institutions. the Project aims at engaging in meaningful and inclusive actions that will directly affect the marginalized communities and indirectly provide the tools for any Moroccan citizen seeking to leave a mark in their society. OBJECTIVE MIPA’s objective is to conduct six “Training for Trainers (T4T)” in six regions in Morocco.
The primary objective of these T4T is to equip youth, women, and person with disabilities (PWDs) with tools and skills to become trainers in their local communities to increase their level of civic engagement and active citizenship.
