Morocco International Understanding and Citizenship Center is an inspiration from the long fruitful collaboration and work of The Friendship Force International Organization (FFI), Friendship Force Morocco and the Bridge of Cultures NOP Organization.
FFAM started in 2006 and was officially chartered by the FFI in Atlanta in 2009.
In a relatively short time we expanded and became a Moroccan network of FF Members and host families in various cities: Rabat, Salé, Fes, Azrou, Erfoud and Marrakech.
Since we started we have hosted delegations of Friendship Force
Ambassadors from different clubs and countries such as the
United States of America, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Costa
Rica and Japan.
MIUCC was created with the purpose to reinforce and promote morally and practically the Friendship philosophy to promote global understanding and peace across the barriers that separate people.
In addition to our work in the cross cultural peace education, in our community, we do our best to support children with disabilities, we provide to children and youth English, French and computer literacy courses and also, initiation to mediation and conflict resolution, Leadership, Civic Engagement and Community Services.
This is how we would like to contribute to a Global Change for a Better World.
A World of Friends is a World of Peace.
We host 3 to 4 FF
Exchanges per year and we are looking forward to welcoming more!

Morocco, its place in the region, and his grasp of the universal
human rights, democracy, and leadership issues that are the purpose
of our trip…He not only grasps the underlying principles, he lives
