Challenge

From the low-income neighborhoods of Casablanca to the housing projects of the Bronx, there are numerous boundaries preventing teens from expanding their knowledge, having access to professional opportunities, and succeeding in a global society. Despite living in an interconnected world, youth remain excluded because of economical divides, lack of access to technology and discrepancies in public educational systems. This project will affect 60 high school students in Morocco and the US.

Solution

The Dounia Project aims at creating a safe and nurturing space where students from different urban areas around the world can complete their homework and participate in a set of extracurricular activities during non-school hours, which will allow them to develop the necessary skills to compete in an increasingly globalized world. DP's overall goal is to create a global network of programs where young people can interconnect with each other, exchange their ideas and find ways to make their world a better place.
This project will support the development, sustainability and growth of 3 afterschool programs in New York, USA and Casablanca, Morocco providing 60 high school students living in low-income communities with the opportunity to interact via videoconference and exchange their ideas and talents through the implementation of service and digital projects positively affecting communities in the local and global level.

Long-Term Impact

The project will run in three different communities serving over 60 high school students around the world allowing them to use the different skills and competencies acquired throughout the program to actively participate and succeed in a more globally integrated world and positively develop their respective communities.
