A bridge between Morocco and Catalonia

“We believe that Incuba is an exemplary project and that, thanks to the choral work of public organizations and social entities, it can respond to the real needs of young people, especially Moroccan women”


From 16 to 20 August, a team led by the Utopia Foundation and volunteers in international cooperation of the Resilis Foundation, were able to live an experience of exchange between the realities of social access in Catalonia and Morocco respectively.

The trip had two objectives: Firstly, to start establishing alliances in order to replicate the Incuba Project in the city of Tetouan, and secondly, to carry out for the first time a professional exchange between social educators of the Oikia center of Girona and professionals of the Fez orphanage that they visited.

The Incuba project has been carried out successfully since 2014 in Fez and now from the Utopia Foundation, dedicated to international cooperation, we want to carry out the same task in the city of Tetouan, where many young people come from all over Morocco, to seek opportunities and a better life.

The Altra Riba cooperation project, focused on minors in a situation of serious vulnerability or fostered in orphanages in the country.

“We believe that Incuba is an exemplary project and that, thanks to the choral work of public organizations and social entities, it can respond to the real needs of young people, especially Moroccan women” -Raquel Sabater, head of the Utopia Foundation, explains.

Regarding the Training and Exchange between Educators, it is one of the objectives of the new cooperation project Altra Riba, focused on minors in a situation of serious vulnerability or fostered in orphanages in the country.

The training consisted of 12 hours of meetings and meetings between Resilis volunteers and professionals caring for children in one of the largest orphaned children’s shelters in Fez. 140 foster children and more than 60 professionals.
