NGOS Achievements Via Social Media : From training to autonomy
More than 50 NGOs working in rural and urban areas are benefiting of E-Mediat Morocco training sessions, which have started since June 2011. At this stage, NGOs benefiting from the E-Mediat Morocco program are preparing their NGOs’ Social Media Strategies and implementing several activities through these tools in different areas including:
Local Affairs Management through Social Media:
The AMADEP association in Ein leuh in the region of Azrou is using tools of social media in order to contribute to local management of their village.  Thus, the association has created a group on facebook for this purpose. The group gathers several NGOs from the village who have decided to create a regional consortium. Their experience has become very popular and is now duplicated in other villages in the region of Azrou. Actually, the group aims at duplicating this experience at the national level. The AMADEP has additionally created a blog for the association http://amadep.blogspot.com in order to promote their activities and another blog http://ifranepress.blogspot.com/, which is an electronic newspaper of the Ifrane province.
