The information campaign on the risks of irregular migration of the project SafeJourney, carried out by the Italian NGO Progettomondo and co-financed by the European Union, continues with the presentation of a theatre play “Clandestine” on 28 January 2022 at 5pm at the Maison des Jeunes de Khouribga.
The Italian NGO Progettomondo, in partnership with the Mawja theatre company, is staging “Clandestine” by Hassan Tabi. The play tells the story of young Miloud’s journey from the Mediterranean to Europe with the aim of making the public reflect on the phenomenon of irregular migration. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of this issue among young people by contributing to a change in their vision and perception and by encouraging a conscious, responsible and safe migration path.
At the end of the show, there will be a moment of exchange with the audience to discuss the causes that lead young people to want to migrate in an irregular way, as well as the reality of the host countries and the risks linked to irregular migration.
After this first performance, the play will also tour the cities of Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangiers.
The new date of ‘Clandestin’ will be on March 31 at 6:00 p.m. for its fourth show at Théâtre Royal de Marrakech.
The project ”SafeJourney”, co-financed by the European Union, implemented by ProgettoMondo in partnership with Iscos Marche, Anolf Piemonte and Famsi, intends to contribute to changing the perception and vision of the irregular migration phenomenon aiming to raise awareness in the social context, with a focus on the voices of returning migrants, whose stories and experiences can help to break the myths related to irregular migration.
The project aims to raise awareness among local communities in the regions of Beni Mellal-Khenifra, Casablanca-Settat, Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima and Marrakech-Safi about the multiple risks of illegal travel (such as loss of life and human trafficking) among different target groups: people ready to migrate, teenage students (minors) and their educators, Moroccans and sub-Saharans looking for a job, and socio-economic influencers who can contribute to local economic development.
The project campaign will focus on presenting concrete and realistic alternatives to migration, always with a view to preventing irregular migration, but also to promoting local development, training and employment opportunities.
