The Coach was selected as one of the two Moroccan National Coaches along with his university team to represent Morocco at the USA-Maghreb Youth Debates. His team reached the final against Tunisia and won the event. He is currently focused and committed to the MNDT and believes they can reach the finals. No team from Africa has ever won the tournament.
His recent success has inspired the President of the “Great Debaters of Moroccan” National Debate Organization, Rajae Boujnah, to assist him in this project and believes in him with full confidence. She has our full support and is currently helping us obtain more sponsorship contracts. The Team is seeking full and partial sponsorships.
