Detailed description of project Back

The objectives of the Government of Morocco’s revised Literacy Strategy as presented in its Declaration of January 2012 are threefold:

  • Reduce the illiteracy rate to 20% by 2016;
  • Offer illiterate adults programmes to provide them with basic skills and competences for integration in their socio-economic and political environment;
  • Implement post-literacy activities allowing new-literates to maintain, strengthen, insert socio-professionally and apply the gained skills through lifelong learning.

The European Union has been supporting the literacy policy of the Government andfocuses in particular on:

  • Reducing the illiteracy rate in the poorest regions and targeting the most vulnerable parts of the population and in particular women;
  • Strengthening the capacity to launch and monitor the strategy on central as well as regional and provincial level;
  • Strengthening the capacity of the intervening actors (NGOs);
  • Quality improvement of adult training, education and guidance;
  • Validation and certification of the training results;
  • Organising the social and socio-professional insertion of graduates (through links with VET and labour Market).

Under this contract the EU Delegation in Morocco has requested assistance in the formulation of the Second Phase of the ALPHA Programme.
