PrésidentIn Morocco, dropping out of school is a phenomenon affecting more than 350,000 students per year. Today, this epidemic is a social problem that has gained in magnitude and has become alarming.

The often involuntary decision to leave school is the result of an accumulation of factors including learning difficulties, especially for children from underprivileged socio-economic backgrounds.

Families with a weak socio-economic status having an insufficient level of education are not very involved in guiding and supervising their children who are suffering from difficulties at school. These children are more exposed to the risk of dropping out.

With an educational approach that is more adapted to children with difficulties in school, learning support is a solution that helps to prevent the risk of dropping out in advance.

In this context, the Sanady Foundation has taken on the mission to prevent dropping out by giving learning support classes to children from underprivileged social backgrounds in rural and exurban areas. These classes are funded by national and international sponsors and by companies, benefitting their workers’ children or beneficiaries of their choosing.

In Sanady’s regions of intervention, the combined effort of companies and sponsor institutions help to reduce dropping out and to improve the children’s level of education while preparing them for a better future.
