About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Over 50 000 of nonprofits and cooperatives in Morocco are struggling to achieve their missions because they lack access to marketing, technology, finance, or strategic planning resources they need to succeed. On the other hand, there are millions of professionals in transition periods looking for consulting opportunities such as graduate students looking for jobs, women who left their jobs to take care of their families, or semi-retired people.
