Morocco continues building and reforming its education system to better meet the demands of the global marketplace:
King Mohammed VI inaugurated, Wednesday in Bir Aharchoune neighborhood in Tangiers, a preschool educational center, as part of the National Human Development Initiative (INDH) for a total investment of 6.5 million dirhams.
Mirroring the community-based policy advocated by the King, this project shows the sovereign’s special interest in issues related to protecting children, securing their future and preserving their dignity.
The center, whose building works were launched by the King on March 27, 2014, is part of a major plan to construct 23 preschool educational centers (20.8 million dirhams) in the districts of Beni Makada (Bir Aharchoune, Bir Chifa, Al Guenbouria, Bouhout, Al Aouma Charquia, Lahdad, Lakouadess, El Ouarda, Annachad), of Tangiers Médina (Dradeb, Rehrah, Mesnana, Ziaten), of M’Ghogha (Essania, Tanjah El Balia, Ard Daoula, M’Ghogha Lakbira), and of Souani (Branes, My Slimane avenue).
This plan, which is in line with the goals of the “Tangiers-Metropolis” program, will provide quality preschool education for kids from underprivileged families in the targeted neighborhoods, eradicate illiteracy and generalize preschool education which is a prerequisite to ensure equal opportunity in education.
The plan is a fruit of a partnership between the INDH, the ministry of education and vocational training, the Tangiers-Assilah prefecture, the Tangiers urban commune and the Moroccan foundation for the promotion of preschool education.
Out of the 23 scheduled centers, 12 have already been constructed, nine are under construction and two will be launched next October…[FULL STORY]
