oGCDP Bi-weekly Newsletter
Straight from the MCVP;
I'm pleased to come back to you with the Bi-Weekly Newsletter of oGCDP in its "Special Edition". Why Special? simply because we're in the biggest peak of summer preparation: ***Matching Peak***
This newsletter is special for its content, but not only this, it's also special for the impact it'll have on your entity, AIESEC in Morocco and Moroccan students generally providing them with life changing experiences this summer.
To remind you, in summer 2014, our strongest bottleneck was the matching, we lost a lot of potential change agents just because they couldn't find the right opportunities for themselves, however, this is a lesson to not be repeated ;)
It's time to move fast and tell the world that Morocco exist and is Strong with its Youth! Enjoy reading ^^
PS. The picture shows how much my ambition is strong and big for this Summer 15
Your MCVP oGCDP
AIESEC in Morocco 14/15
oGCDP in numbers
Every entity joined on board this April, better late than never, we raised more than 350+ and matched 110+ Youhow!With those matches, we reached 45% of the National Goal (which is 250 matches before end June)..Oh Yea! 55% is yet to be achieved in the upcoming 2 months (May & June) but mostly May as it's our last match peak, our last chance!!
The biggest contributors to those national results are AIESEC LC ANFA and AIESEC LC MENARA. Big Thumbs Up.
However, this doesn't mean that other entities are not contributing, but on a smaller scale. So to have visibility on this, the chart on right represents how much each entity is close to its goal and the TOP 2 entities are AIESEC LC MENARA and AIESEC SU OUFELLA. Can't be more proud!
Entities in red, I've faith in your potential so I'm expecting to see you TOP PERFORMERS by the next newsletter, in exactly 2 weeks! Go go go!!
After an intense MENAXLDS experience, I gained a big push of energy, and I'm sure also other oGCDP Wizards who were present..This made me think of AIESEC in Morocco reality, potential and purpose, and I only had it clear in the Gala Night where 6 of the Regional Awards given to MENA LCs, none was for entities of Morocco and 5 were for Egypt!
That night I cried (I'm being honest), not because of an Award that doesn't really represent much, but because of all AIESECers from Morocco who witnessed this, and others, who are putting all their efforts, time, energy and even money in their entities and functions but still couldn't celebrate this. Because of all efforts driven by each one of my VPs and my VPs teams.
Being solution oriented, what can we do? working more hard or less hard but smarter? obviously the second option was more attractive that night and so, I'm pleased dear reader to introduce to you..drum rolls..

In order to be smart in oGCDP, we need to master each peace of the process, a lot of discussions were set in the oGCDP Summit, based on which 7 projects were launched
Global Citizen Hub
Global Citizen Debates
Global Citizen Phone Application
All those projects were in mind since the begining of my term, yet they required a big amount of focus for me to be able to work on them (working hard), by thinking smart, I'm opening for you these projects to contribute to them, you're the ones who are truly able to make a difference, to compete with MENA and win the CHALLENGE!
Join the Movement..Apply before Sunday 3rd May at 11:59pm GMT+1
Show me how much you care about oGCDP, AIESEC in your entity and AIESEC in Morocco. Waiting to be impressed!
April National Matching Mania with Partners
One of the other smart ways to reach to our ambition, and also in order to honor our engagement with our national partners, I'm pleased to invite you to our Matching Mania happening Sunday, 3rd May in Skype: aiesec.maroc
From 1pm to 5pm [GMT+1]: ASIA PACIFIC
From 5pm to 9pm [GMT+1]: MENA, CEE, LATIN AMERICA, WENA
What's Matching Mania?
We have a lot of EPs still available, and this is not good for the health of our operations. It's then highly important to invite EPs and be present to join this Matching Mania.
It's a conversation in skype where supply and demand is presented, TN managers presenting their offers and EPs/EPMs presenting their interests #MatchSouq
Who will be present?
Aside from EPs/EPMs, entities partners who confirmed presence so far are: Russia, Lebanon, Brazil, Indonesia, Mainland of China, Malaysia
Romania, Italy, Korea, India, Bahrain are also potential attendees this Sunday!
A special conversation will be opened for Africa countries to raise awareness of our EPs about the impact we can have in Africa compared to the one in Europe!
Matching Mania Flow:
Matching Mania will be divided by countries, which means, there will be conversation for each entity partner separetly, to the conversations, will be added TN managers of the country and also 9 individual representatives from each LC/IG/SU in Morocco who will have the role of adding EP managers and any other EPs from their entity, EP managers can then add their EPs also.
For an efficient MaMa, EPs need to be ready to take as many interviews as possible to higher their chances
Who are the entities respresentatives?
You're EP Manager from Menara? add Aminewillis (Amine El Kodmiri)
You're EP Manager from Anfa? add soukaina.clapton (Soukaina Bideq)

You're EP Manager from Saiss? add mizzovic1 (Hamza Alami)
**Please be present all along the MaMa to support your EPMs/EPs
Europe dream: Wake up!
1stly, Europe destinations already closed doors, if not, are closing doors, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Czech Republic are the entities we matched with the less because of their small amount of TNs, their requirements, and their timeline (most projects are on May-June)
2ndly, thinking logically, what is the impact a Moroccan student will bring to a developed country in Europe? we created a detractor in winter period of an EP who got realized in Italy and didn't appreciate his experience, simply because he doesn't feel the change, he was just a tourist! AIESEC is not a tourism agency, and to prove it, we need to send more students to regions where they can impact Aka MENA, LATAM and Asia!
Inactivity and unprofessionalism
As my peer Amine says always, you need to control your EPs, not let them control you :D
