Video Contest

We organized a video competition tailored for migrants, encouraging them to create short videos using their smartphones, focusing on a topic provided by us.

Participants created a short video using their phones showcasing their personal journey, challenges, aspirations, and contributions as migrants in Moroccan society. The participants edited their videos using their smartphones. In recognition of the fact that many migrants may not have access to professional video editing equipment, we have designed the contest to be inclusive and accessible. Editing on smartphones allowed participants to utilize readily available tools and showcase their creativity without any barriers.

Displayed below is the winning video from our contest, offering a glimpse into the challenges faced by migrants in Morocco. As a reward, our organization equipped the winner with a laptop, facilitating their journey of online skill development. The winner is now a member of our organization, where they are currently studying video editing. This initiative not only emphasizes the significance of digital skills for migrants but also aligns with our commitment to providing essential tools and resources. We eagerly await the compelling creations that will arise from their new skills in video editing.
