The Migrant Information and Orientation Desk was inaugurated within the framework of the European Union-funded project “Mediterranean City-to-City Migration – Reinforcing Urban Capacity Partnerships (MC2CM-RUCP), implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).


The initiative was carried out in partnership with the Municipality of Casablanca and the Regional Directorate of Handicrafts Casablanca-Settat of the Ministry of Tourism, Handicrafts and Social and Solidarity Economy. It aims to facilitate migrant people’s access to vocational training services, preparing them for effective integration into the job market.



Through this pilot initiative, beneficiaries will be able to familiarise themselves with diverse training programmes offered by the Ministry, the National Mutual Aid (Entraide Nationale), and the Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion (OFPPT). The Migrant Information and Orientation Desk will serve as a guidance platform, highlighting the various opportunities available, tailored to the specific needs and abilities of migrant communities.



The Desk will be integrated with the “Migrant(e)s Help” mobile application, developed in partnership with the local NGO “Pionniers du Changement” of Oujda. With a detailed map of available public services, the application will enable users to easily locate key institutions such as government offices, health centres, schools, and other essential services in Casablanca, Rabat, and Oujda.
