CHALLENGE More than 200,000 NGOs in Morocco experience challenges in accessing programs for capacity building in both general and specific fields, such as administrative and financial management, advocacy, communication, as well as participation in public policy. Therefore, and with the aim of promoting associative work, there has to be access to simplified training content for those who are interested in creating and managing NGOs.
PROPOSED SOLUTION Build an e-learning national portal dedicated to NGOs, where training modules on topics related to citizen participation and community life would be offered. As a first step, the portal will offer a training module on participatory democracy which capitalizes on the in-person training NGO programs, which were carried out in the context of commitment 16 of the first Open Government National Action Plan. This module was improved based on the suggestions of the beneficiaries of the training program. The portal’s content will be progressively expanded by adding new training modules, mainly focusing on the following areas: • ▪NGOs Access to the audiovisual field; • ▪Process of creating a new NGO; • ▪Strategic planning; • ▪Administrative and Financial management; • ▪Project management; • ▪Advocacy techniques. This portal will also provide a certificate upon completion of an online assessment.
