Who are we?
The Moroccan Center for Civic Education is an independent NGO founded in 2004. It developed a strong administrative and programmatic capacity for expansion very soon after its initial establishment.
Our mission is to train and educate younger generations to become responsible, effective and active citizens committed to democratic principles.
By the end of 2005, the Moroccan Center for Civic Education had extended its rigorous teacher training and implementation civic education programs to five out of sixteen regions of Morocco. The program now has the steadfast support of the Ministry of Education, Higher Education, Staff Training and Scientific Research.
The Moroccan Center for Civic Education has been working closely with governmental and non-governmental organizations in eight of the sixteen regions. A partnership agreement with the Ministry of Education was signed during the 12th World Congress on Civic Education that got together 250 participants from over 55 countries. This congress which was held under the high patronage of HM Mohamed VI King of Morocco was co organized by the Moroccan Center for Civic Education and the Center for Civic Education, California in collaboration with the Moroccan Ministry of Education, the Higher Council for Education and AlAkhawayn University
The Moroccan Center for Civic Education is currently working with its partners on two important projects. The Civic Education Partnership Initiative, a three year project funded by MEPI (Middle East Partnership Initiative) and USAID and two year project on supporting the engagement of civil society in Morocco?s elections funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).
The Moroccan Center for Civic Education Center has also developed new partnerships with Moroccan and international institutions through the CIVITAS International network.
