FOR THE PROFESSIONAL REINTEGRATION OF NEETs
THE MISSION OF THE PROJECT
One of the ambitions of Saham Foundation is to contribute to the social reintegration of young NEETs through the creation of integrated centres. These centres, called Massari, are a place of social and professional reintegration which act on 3 aspects:
A PILOT CENTRE IN CASABLANCA
Located on the outskirts of Casablanca, the first MASSARI centre is a vocational training centre, a psychological support centre and a cultural and sports centre.
By establishing MASSARI Centre, Saham Foundation's ambition is to reconcile the NEET young with the job market and the society, through establishing relations with trainers and employers, but also through cultural and sports activities. Saham Foundation is also committed to accompanying the NEETs on the psychological level in order to reconcile the NEETs with themselves.
INAUGURATION OF THE FIRST MASSARI CENTRE
In November 2020, the Saham Foundation inaugurated its first pilot centre, MASSARI, in the presence of the governor of Mediouna. It is a second chance school for the social and professional reintegration of young people in the outskirts of Casablanca.
This centre was made possible thanks to the effective support of partners from the public and private sectors: The National Human Development Initiative (INDH), the Province of Mediouna, the Ministry of Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research, The National Agency for the Promotion of Employment and Competencies (ANAPEC), The Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion (OFPPT) and private economic operators, and the recruiters committed to our side.

CONTRIBUTING TO THE SOCIAL INCLUSION OF THE DISADVANTAGED YOUTH
Aimed at the professional and social reintegration of young people in difficulty, the first MASSARI Centre offers young NEET, aged between 13 and 25 years old, the opportunity to benefit from free activities and training. As such the missions of the pilot MASSARI centre, located in the province of Mediouna, in Sidi Hajjaj.
- Optimizing the employability of young NEET 16-25 years old in the Province of Mediouna by creating partnerships with companies committed to the recruitment of these young people;
- Contributing to bringing back students to their schools;
- Giving a new impulse in the social, cultural and professional life of these young people;
- Contributing to the reintegration of these young people in Moroccan society.
OFFERING FREE ACTIVITIES AND TRAINING SESSIONS
In collaboration with its partners, the MASSARI Centre aims to accompany Morocco in the social inclusion of disadvantaged youth. Indeed, one third of the Moroccan youth between 15 and 25 years old are NEET. The MASSARI centre tries to contribute to this problem of reintegration through psychological support, offering training and conducting sports and cultural activities.
To this end, the MASSARI centre is equipped with infrastructures and complete equipment as well as a qualified staff:
- A psychological care unit;
- Training courses to prepare young people for the jobs of tomorrow.
- A space for cultural and sports for the young NEETs;
The young NEETs of the MASSARI centre have access to all these activities, free of charge.
ACTIVITIES TO WIND DOWN
AN INITIATION TO SOFT SKILLS TO MAKE DIFFERENCE
SUPPORTING THE YOUNG PEOPLE ON THE PSYCHOLOGICAL LEVEL
The vocation of the MASSARI centre is to accompany young people, often unmotivated, on a psychological level and to guide them, thanks to the mobilization of specialized therapists and coaching sessions. Thus, after one month of these sessions, more than 160 young people have been supported by our psychologists and nearly 800 young people have participated in our webinars.
The psychological programme of the MASSARI Centre is carried out in the form of individual and group sessions. When necessary, the support and psychological work can be extended to the family members of the young NEET.
ENHANCE THE EMPLOYABILITY OF YOUNG NEETS
In order to help the NEET young improve their chances of integration into the labour market, Saham Foundation has established partnerships with recruiters who participate in the training process within the MASSARI centre. These companies can get in touch with the young people as soon as they register and participate in the qualifying trainings.
These trainings complement the theoretical courses in soft skills and languages, as requirements of the job market. Thus, the first pilot classes of the MASSARI centre are intended to be recruited by operators in the offshoring and human services sectors. Eventually, the objective is to develop 9 other MASSARI centres in Morocco to integrate, in the long term, at least 6 000 young people per year. To achieve this, Saham Foundation continues to build strong partnerships with private and public institutions committed to the social and professional reintegration of young Moroccans, who are currently on the margins of society.
