Marrakech – After an increasing success throughout all the previous editions of the Other Leader Program (OLP) , the associations Al Atlassain, Association of Educational Communication (JSV formerly), and Association Marocaine de Probabilité et Statistiques (AMPS), announced the launch of the fifth edition of Other Leader Program (OLP) on last Sunday in the Tinghir province, Boumalne Dadeds.
The OLP is an initiative which paves the way to success for students in southeast Morocco by presenting educational assistance to excellent students with financial need so that they may succeed and enroll in higher education institutions to study medicine, engineering and other fields.
The OLP aims at promoting a sense of distinction, success, and patriotism amid the Moroccan public schools as it seeks to enhance the academic level of students and prepare them for positions of active and patriotic leaders.
The OLP provides educational assistance by presenting reinforcement lessons for students and organizing educational visits to higher institutions and schools such as those in Rabat, Casablanca, El Jadida, Setat, Marrakesh and Agadir. In addition, this program provides all the necessities to excel at preparations for higher education such as extra courses focused on entrance exams.
The Chairman of the Association of Educational Communication, Naaim. Mouhssine, told MWN that “the 5th edition will be different from the previous ones, as it will cover not only, the three provinces, Ouarzazate, Tinghir, and Zagoura, but also Errachidia, which means the 5th, edition will cover about 24 high schools.”
“The 5th edition will enlarge its activities so that it will cover the reinforcement and integration of students after baccalaureate year into universities and high schools. Also, as the previous 4th edition of OLP trained about 60 students who could enroll in higher education schools, the 5th edition will include a more encouraging number of students who will benefit from the program’s activities,” he added.
The fourth edition of OLP succeeded in integrating approximately fifty-three excellent students from the provinces of Tinghiir, Ouarzazate and Zagora, in higher Eeucational institutions and schools all over Morocco.
The majority of students who were eligible to complete studies in higher institutions and schools last year as a result of the OLP were female.
Several officials and personalities attended the ceremony, including the governor of Tinghir province, the regional vice president of Tinghir, the chairman of the Scientific Council in Tinghir, elected representatives of local authorities, the directors of high schools in the province, and representatives of the civil society.
At the ceremony, the governor of Tinghir province, Lahcen Arjdam, praised the OLP initiative and showed his readiness to support the program and contribute with all necessities so that it can progressively improve and realize its goals.
