27/10/2017 - HM the King Inaugurates 'Ennahda' Socio-educational, Sports and Medical Complex in Rabat
HM King Mohammed VI inaugurated, on Friday in the Youssoufia neighborhood in Rabat, the integrated socio-educational, sports and medical complex "Ennahda", carried out as part of the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH).
Worth more than 50 million dirhams, this complex, which highlights the social policy led by the Sovereign, reinforces the various INDH projects initiated at the level of the Rabat prefecture. It is meant to fight precariousness and social exclusion for balanced, sustainable and global human development.
The new complex offers a favorable environment to receive and support target groups - women, youth, people with special needs, the elderly and retirees - through listening and counseling actions as well as cultural, educational and sports activities that aim at consolidating social justice and the attributes of a dignified citizenship.
It will provide training for women in difficult circumstances and young people to facilitate their socio-economic integration, meet the needs of people with disabilities, and participate in strengthening local sports infrastructure and developing sports skills of young people.
Built on a plot of 2.17 hectares, the "Ennahda" integrated socio-educational, sports and medical complex is home to a training and capacity building center for women and youth. It includes rooms for training, computing, literacy, household arts, sewing-cutting and hairdressing, a library and a nursery.
It also comprises a regional center for rehabilitation and orthopaedic equipment, which includes consultation, speech therapy, physiotherapy, psychomotricity therapy and walking rooms, as well as workshops for measuring, manufacturing and assembling orthopaedic devices. Benefiting more than 35 people per day, this center is the second of its kind to be carried out by INDH, after that of Tetouan.
The facility also includes a center for older and retired persons, a conference room, sports halls, synthetic grass courts, and a Skate Park.
The complex, whose construction works were launched by the Sovereign on May 11, 2015, will allow local associations to develop their activities in a suitable space to fulfill their civic duty, the centerpiece of the open societal model adopted by Moroccans.
