EFE-Maroc Annual Report Empowering Moroccan Youth with Demand-driven Skills Leading to Employment, Hope and Dignity

The Middle East and North Africa is home to the largest youth population in the world, while also recording the highest levels of youth unemployment.

This high unemployment level is mainly due to the mismatch between the needs of employers and the competencies of young job seekers, the education system not preparing them enough for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs. EFE-Maroc provides youth with career orientation, offers them skills trainings and places its graduates in high-demand jobs.

We believe in the untapped talent of the thousands of unemployed youth in Morocco. We offer skills and hope to a generation who needs both to reshape its future.

“EFE HAS CONNECTED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YOUTH TO THE WORLD OF WORK. WITH EVERY PAYCHECK AND PROMOTION THEY EARN, THESE YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT THE STABLE, PROSPEROUS FUTURE THEY ENVISION.”

Ron BRUDER

Founder, Education For Employment (EFE)

“EFE-MAROC GRADUATES ARE BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR THEMSELVES, THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES, AND BECOMING THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC ASSETS WE KNOW THEM TO BE.”

Mohamed Ibrahim SLAOUI

Chairman and President, EFE-Maroc

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2017

We expanded our partnership with the Citi Foundation for a fifth year

A little over 5 years ago, Education For Employment was a different organization, a pilot that still needed to be proven successful. Our path crossed the one of Citi, and together, we paved a real pathway to progress. The Citi Foundation has continuously invested in our strategic approach, our systems, our new curricula, our innovation and our expansion into new countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

In 2017, the project “Creating Economic Opportunities for MENA Youth” funded by Citi was renewed for the fifth consecutive year. To date, tens of thousands of young people have been trained and placed in jobs.

We launched a new partnership with Boeing for women economic empowerment

EFE’s project “Creating Pathways to Employment for Moroccan Young Women” funded by Boeing aims at training underserved young women in Casablanca to facilitate their integration into the world of work.

We carried on with the “Training For the Future” project funded by Accenture

Training for the Future (TFF) is a 3-year project funded by Accenture as part of its “Skills to Succeed” initiative aimed at providing youth with the skills they need to find and sustain employment. The project aims to provide 1,000 youth and women with gainful employment.
