On the 4th and 5th of August, Young Water Solutions carried out a two-days training for young people with WASH project ideas in Rabat, Morocco. The main goal of the training was to provide tools so that they can turn their ideas into action, reinforcing the role of young people in achieving SDG #6.
12 young people were selected among 61 candidates, and trained in project planning, funding resources, entrepreneurship and pitching, among others. Special guests included:
– Sara Chellaoui, ENACTUS
– Abdelkader El Khissassi, Union of the Mediterranean
– Mouhssine Tadlaoui-Cherki, High Atlas Foundation
100% of the participants indicated after the training that now they felt more encouraged to implement their initiatives.
This workshop was organized with the support of Brussels-Capital Region Government and GoodPlanet Belgium.
