MasterPeace around the world: Morocco
With #MasterPeace_Around_The_World we focus on the people behind our 45+ MasterPeace clubs. We built on their ideas, hard work, and creativity and would like to share their stories with you.
Innovation is the core business of our MasterPeace club in Morocco. With a highly motivated team of 5 Changemakers, they are always on the lookout for creative approaches to advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals 4 (Education For All), 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Sustainable Economic Growth), and 16 (Peaceful and Inclusive Societies). In this episode of MasterPeace Around the World we would like to focus on the experiences of our highly motivated Changemakers in Morocco; as their actions speak louder than our words!
What I really love about Masterpeace is how this organization inspires youth to get involved in the process of spreading peace through programs that give them the chance to share their talents, personal vision, personal projects and taking part in voluntary work abroad. By virtue of all activities that we have done, I have managed to enhance my skills as well as gaining leadership outlooks to work harder and make the world a better place for those who are more vulnerable than me.
My favorite project was ‘Walls of Connection,’ in which we gathered people from all around the world to start a dialogue, and co-create make more colorful communities.’
What makes MasterPeace different than other organisations is that it’s an International Organisation. All over the world we work for the same goal: inspire youth to use their talents to increase peace in the world.
Nowadays we need to have such movements in our societies, we need to hear the word ‘peace’ more than the word ‘war,’ ‘Music above fighting,’ ‘Dialogue above Judgment,’ ‘Bread above of Bombs,’ ‘Creation above destruction.’

I like to be identified by the last one. Every Human being’s story matters ,and it is a world peace story that we are building together ! It is just amazing to see how much I have changed after joining MasterPeace Morocco. You realize that youth,when empowered and given the chance, can make a great impact and lead the change in their community. I was Empowered, and now it is my time to empower others!
My favorite project is HJAYTNA, which means our tale and it is a storytelling project that aims to revive and modernize old stories and bring new ones into life.

MasterPeace offers us the possibility to reach out to other youth leaders all around the world! I am proud to be part of such a global network, and I am sure that without it we would not have accomplished what we have done so far.
My favorite projects are two on which we are working at the moment: a form that is called Stop Making Excuses, focused on activating youth to become active within their society. The Second one is our Youth Magazine, which brings together youth from all over Morocco. Both ideas are very innovative which makes them extremely fun to work on!

I really love how motivated all members are. It is inspiring to work with them all and I learn about pretty much everything; from how to connect with people via marketing to connect expressing my ideas and stimulating my creativity. I am happy to have found a creative way in which I do not only work on projects that I love but also contribute to Peace. And above all: I learned how to spread peace without expecting anything back!
My favorite project so far was “how to jump from idea to action,” it was a great success!! During the training days we helped people to translate their social business ideas in plans!

I joined MasterPeace Morocco in 2015 as a volunteer. My passion to achieve peace and bring people together, the high team spirit among the members, and believe in each others’s qualities motivate me on a daily basis!
We often start with small ideas, like the African Youth Leadership Symposium and the Meet the World event. These two simple ideas turned out in great successes and I am proud to be a part of them!
