Minister of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research Said Amzazi and Chairwoman and CEO of Injaz Al-Maghrib NGO Laila Mamou signed the agreement earlier this week to facilitate young people’s entrance into the labor market and business world.
“We are launching this initiative, the signing of the agreement between the Ministry and the Injaz Al-Maghrib Foundation, which consists in setting up, at the primary level, a training program in the form of workshops,” said Minister Amzazi.
The workshops will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about the world of business and the labor market and will promote their entrepreneurial skills to prepare them for the workplace.
Amzazi added that the initiative is an “opportunity to open our schools to the world of entrepreneurship and the labor market, and to instill the values of work.”
Amzazi asserted that “entrepreneurship must accompany the education process of the child since primary school” and that the project “will allow students to acquire important skills, to forge their personalities and professional projects” that can help them to have a successful future.
The CEO of the NGO said that Injaz Al-Maghrib will organize regional and national business competitions in September and October in various schools throughout the country.
The agreement falls within the framework of the Strategic Vision for Reform 2015-2030, which aims to strengthen partnerships between private and public institutions. The vision also seeks to involve companies in the development of professional projects.
Created in 2007, Injaz Al-Maghrib seeks to empower youth and allow them to start junior companies and master the basics of finance. Injaz Al Maghrib runs programs for students that link the educational and business world and instill initiative and entrepreneurship among youth.
