Thanks to her academic background, her professional ambitions and her commitment to help women in their home to enter the world of entrepreneurship that the Moroccan Siham Meftahi won the Prix de l’Élève Ingénieure Maghreb. A distinction awarded in the context of the operation Ingénieuses’2018 organized by the Conférence des Directeurs des Écoles Françaises d’Ingénieurs (CDEFI) in partnership with the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie ((AUF).
“The AUF has been supporting its member institutions to promote gender equality for many years by supporting actions in the world, including the “Ingénieuses” competition,” explained Jean-Luc Tholozan, regional director of the AUF in the Maghreb in a statement.
The course of Siham Meftahi is exemplary for the rising generations. This student has created the social start-up Safe-Eat to support women in precariousness. In concrete terms, her company sells homemade dishes made by women from the Safe-Eat network to a clientele looking for a healthy diet. But that’s not all. The start-up helps the same women attain the status of self-entrepreneur, while strengthening their culinary talent through training.
