HM King Mohammed VI inaugurated, on Tuesday at the Al Fath neighborhood in Skhirate, a training center for women and another for training and artistic and cultural activities, carried out by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity for an amount of 8 million dirhams.
These two projects mirror the unwavering commitment of HM the King to be responsive to the expectations of women and young people, and show the royal solicitude for the human capital, a cornerstone of any sustainable development policy.
The women training center will enable to develop, through courses of literacy and training on income-generating jobs, women's competences to help with their integration in the working life and the dynamic of local development.
Built over a surface area of 400 square meters, the new facility includes several workshops (culinary art and pastry, sewing, hair dressing and esthetics), literacy classrooms, classrooms for remedial courses and computer science, and a drop-in and guidance room. Its management is entrusted to a local association.
The training and artistic and cultural activities center is part of the program elaborated by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity for young people and seeks to give this social segment the means to blossom and ensure their socio-cultural integration through supervision, remedial education and training.
The new facility will enable a wider participation by the region's youth in social life thanks mainly to association-based actions, artistic and cultural activities, remedial education and languages.
Stretching over 618 square meters, the center comprises several workshops (theater, painting, music), classrooms for remedial courses and foreign languages, and a library-multimedia library. Its management is entrusted to the Office of vocational training and labor promotion and a local association.
These projects, whose building works were launched by the Sovereign on July 17, 2013, are the fruit of a partnership between the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity and the Al Omrane Group
