Fil Rouge Maroc II
Start date: Jan 17, 2015,
End date: Jan 16, 2016
This project is coordinated by “Groupe d’Appui et de Solidarité” (Support and Solidarity Group) non-profit organization, the sending structure, in partnership with the non-profit organization “Migrations et Développement” (Migrations and Development), hosting structure. This project, entitled « Projet fil rouge Maroc II », includes a short term European Voluntary Service (EVS) project.
One group of 8 young people in short term EVS will be sent to Taliouine in Morocco in the early summer 2015 with missions related to sustainable development, community commitment and youth in order to continue the work that already started in 2014 with the first short term EVS in Taliouine.
The activities will mainly focus on landscaping and the renovation of waste storage buildings, in order to raise awareness regarding the impact of recycling on environmental preservation.
This project has different objectives. First of all, the aim is to allow young french people, facing social and professional integration difficulties, to live a civic engagement experience through a community project which is responding the need of other citizens (in this case Moroccans). Then, to develop and strengthen required training to their civil, social and professional integration (knowledge, behavior and know-how) but also to accentuate their autonomy and to assume responsibility. Finally, to widen their knowledge about other cultures, contexts, their manner to live, being mixed and exchanging with Moroccans, especially the Moroccan youth.
Moreover, this second EVS project is allowing us to strengthen ours ties with the organization “Migrations et Développement”, with whom we are sharing the same values and objectives and to continue the work with the french participants in Taliouine. Through the EVS, we want to give another dimension to the citizen and solidarity actions supported by our organization in France and more specifically in Picardy. By allowing young people from Picardy to live an intercultural experience of civic engagement, we also want to encourage their engagement within our organization and other actors involved in community projects in Picardy.
