Written by FDM

King Mohammed VI launched on Monday, May 21, along with his son Prince Moulay El Hassan three solidarity projects in Kénitra province, including one dedicated to women fishermen, MAP reported.

In Kenitra, three projects were launched by King Mohammed VI with Prince Moulay El Hassan. Among them, one will cater for women with the construction of a House of the fishermen’s families in Mehdia. In this institution, training courses on local income-generating professions will be provided to women – nearly 250 beneficiaries per year – while assisting them to the creation of cooperatives.

This project, which will be built within a year and has requested an investment of 6 million dirhams, will also offer women literacy classes, listening, guidance and socio-educational support. Spread out on a plot of 1500 m², the future institution will also house culinary arts, sewing-cutting, embroidery-knitting and handicraft workshops. Rooms dedicated to computer and tutoring classes will be provided, in addition to sales points of the House’s products, a playground, and a nursery for preschool children.

The two other projects launched by the King are a vocational training and integration center in Sidi Taibi, as well as another vocational training center for agricultural logistics in Souk El Arbâa.
