Inclusive Civic Education

Speeches Shim

USAID is providing grants to three civil society organizations (CSOs) to increase civic education and awareness of the roles of citizens in civic life, especially among women, youth, and people with disabilities (PWDs). Citizens will gain a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities in the democratic process, which will result in increased participation and a greater sense of social cohesion. This program is integral to USAID Morocco objectives and complements ongoing and future projects to increase inclusive socio-economic development in Morocco.

Through these grants, USAID will support the CSOs in promoting inclusive civic education by:

  • Increasing awareness, engagement, and participation of marginalized populations in governance and policymaking through civic education, including public resource management;
  • Enhancing public trust and confidence of marginalized populations in the ability of elected officials to govern and realize policy changes that are responsive to the needs of marginalized populations, with a focus on youth, women, and PWDs; and
  • Improving perceptions of the targeted marginalized populations towards the political process.
