Fondation Orient-Occident (FOO) is a Moroccan non-profit organization recognized of public utility. Intellectually and practically conceived as a bridge between the two shores of the Mediterranean, its mission is to come towards the difficulties of migrants, refugees and the disadvantaged youth, and to promote employability by setting up socio-educational and professional training centers. Fondation Orient-Occident also works for the protection of diversity, and for the valorisation of all cultures. Nowadays the Foundation is present in several Moroccan cities (and regions), namely Rabat, Casablanca, Larache, Tangier, Oujda, Fez, Marrakech, Youssoufia and Ben Guerir and in Italy. In addition, the Foundation carries out advocacy work at the international level, particularly in the framework of its participation to global meetings such as the World Economic Forum.
