Once again, the focal point was to enter into a dialogue with the Moroccan authorities, in order to get the necessary permits required to launch an organization in Morocco and, even more important, in order to enter into a more general dialogue about stronger cooperation between the authorities and voluntary organizations.

In order to do this, we had to meet with several official authorities in Tangier and Rabat, including the Moroccan Ministry of Social Affairs and Foreign Ministry.

With the intent to establish a collaboration regarding ICVA volunteer initiatives – MOVES – we once again met with the police on several occasions. Concurrently, I visited and met with numerous organizations in order to identify as many qualified organizations as possible for the ICVA community.
