1Dh for Rabat

Although the civil society in Rabat is one of the most dynamic and active in terms of advocacy, mobilization and creating impact, there are a great number of citizens not engaged into any kind of social or civil activity. Nevertheless, this lack of engagement does not denote a lack of will to help; it is rather a culture of civic engagement that takes time to be established in their consciousness. That being said, this project can serve many aspects of civic engagement, one of them is to encourage Rabat citizens to be part of a project to develop their city by contributing with “one dirhams” deducted from the bill they pay to a restaurant/coffee in the city. An agreement should be set up with restaurants and coffee owners by giving the choice to customers to devote one additional dirham to their bill or to the owner to give it dedicate it from its benefits.
