Imdad, a nongovernmental organization based in Morocco that accompanies and assists young Moroccan entrepreneurs with valuable social projects, organizes a contest entitled “Forsa Challenge,” in coordination with U.S. State Department.
The project aims at supporting and encouraging young Moroccan entrepreneurs to set up their own social enterprises. The benefit of society is thus expected to be at the center of every candidate’s project.
Candidates must be aged between 19 and 30, and present ideas of social projects they intend to embark on, or have already established but with less than 3 years of existence by the time of application.
Their projects must address social challenges, such as homelessness, joblessness, illiteracy, physical impairment, environment, or generate job opportunities for unprivileged persons. Their social projects can be companies, associations or cooperatives.
One of the objectives of this contest is to bring together aspiring young entrepreneurs who will, in turn, inspire other young people to embrace the spirit of entrepreneurship.
The project also aims at equipping candidates with the skills and expertise necessary for them to overcome the different challenges they might face throughout their entrepreneurial journey. It also provides them with necessary materials and backgrounds to consolidate their entrepreneurial spirit and enable them to turn problems into opportunities.
The contest, first of its kind in North Africa and the Middle East, will be broadcast on the net, and candidates will be supervised, trained and assisted by highly professional businesspersons from Morocco and abroad.
Besides its encouragement and support of Moroccan young entrepreneurs, who have ideas that can benefit their society, Imdad works also to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in Morocco.
