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.
