Foundation once again in Morocco


Next Friday, 16 January, chairman Joan Laporta is to open the first XICS centre in Morocco. It is in Tangier and will help around 300 at-risk children in the Beni Makada district.

The XICS Morocco seeks both to prevent the educational exclusion of at-risk children aged 8 to 16 who miss a lot of school time and also to promote sport as a source of positive values.

New facilities

It has 2000 m2 of multi-sports courts and 380 m2 gross floor area with two classrooms, a room for computers, theatre, workshops etc. and changing rooms fitted with showers.

The project has been partnered by the Catalan Development Cooperation Association, the Iberostar Foundation, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation and a number of local organizations.

XICS in Africa

The Foundation’s XICS programme has so far been rolled out in 5 African countries: Senegal and Morocco with operating centres, Mali and Burkina Faso with centres being built and Malawi with a centre in the pipeline.
Foundation once again in Morocco
Second time in Morocco
This isn’t the first Foundation programme to be implemented in Morocco. In May 2007 Sports Solidarity Workshops were held in Tangier to provide educators with the skills they need to use sport as a tool for teaching. 30 educators and 150 kids benefited from this successful programme.
