“Dear Iman,

I enjoyed reading the  Ashoka Arab World Annual Report 2013.

Congratulations for the Ashoka Arab World Achievements under your leadership. Thanks a million for your precious  support.

As for me, the Ashoka Arab World opened for me a world of opportunities. I am convinced that being Ashoka fellow helped me to develop my network of 76  national and international partners.

I seize this occasion to inform you that my work is evolving very well. I have opened branches in 8 Moroccan cities and I am planing to open 8 more other  offices in the 3 coming years. I trained since 2008, 30 000 students on Entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness. I have the ambition to reach 72 000 students by 2016. I signed, on March 5th, 2014 an agreement the Moroccan Minister of Education considering the program I am implementing as official activities of his Minister.

I won the 2013 Entrepreneurship Award from Metlife Foundation and my work is featured by the organization called Arab Excellence. President Clinton cited my work in the article he published in the Time Magazine on September 30th, 2013 under the title « How the world’s most influential change agents mobilize for action »

Looking forward meeting you.

Best regards

Mhammed Abbad Andaloussi
