Code for Morocco

Who we are?

Code for Morocco is part of the Code for Africa initiative which aims  to promote informed decision-making that drives social change. We use information and communication technology tools, to provide citizens with the right information to make fair decisions and have a clear vision.

What we do?

Open data allows citizens to participate and monitor the development of the country in order to have a strong democracy dependent on committed citizens. For this reason we support NGO’s  to meaningfully engage with citizens.
