Hyatt Regency Casablanca and Fondation Zakoura
Fondation Zakoura is a nonprofit that focuses on human development through the education of children, the employability of young people and the empowerment of women. Fondation Zakoura's programs target children, youths, women and local associations in rural areas in Morocco.
The Hyatt Community Grant will be used for the ANEER program, a model of community pre-schooling aimed at children between the age of four and six.
ANEER program aims to impact the entire environment of children including schools and parents in order to create the most favorable conditions for a successful education. The grant will help establish a preschool program and will allow financing it for two years.
At the end of the project, the preschool program will benefit 75 children. The awareness of 50 mothers to their children’s stimulation will be raised. Five to six awareness sessions are offered to fathers to ensure their support. 100 community members will be aware of the program’s objectives as “it takes a village to raise a child”. In total, the project will benefit 225 people.
The team at Hyatt Regency Casablanca will be involved in raising the project and bringing it to life. Our next step will be to go visit the site where the school will be. Then we will help in furnishing and maintaining the site. We will also be involved in meeting with parents and the kids. All along the 2 years, we will visit the kids and bring our help and support.
