The Moroccan National Debate Team (MNDT) is an international high school national team that competes in English language debates, and is governed by Moroccan Debate Association (MDA). MDA is a non-profit organization based in Casablanca and was founded by Soufiane Choubani, who also created the team in March 2014 after the first Moroccan National Debaters were pre-selected. In August 2014, The MNDT became the 1st ever (and only) North African nation to compete in the World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC) in Thailand.
The team is selected each year in September, where we select the most outstanding students, who display potential in speech and debate, and then train them to compete at the most prestigious competitions around the world.
Our other activities also include hosting debate clubs and competition in different four cities and each summer, we host the Moroccan-Youth Debate Camp in different cities, which was the first Debate Camp in North Africa. We also proudly organizer and host the Moroccan Open Debate Tourament (MODT), which was the first-ever international high school and World Schools Style (WSS) tournament in North Africa when it was first held in Tangier in December 2014.
#Proud to be ranked as the 2nd Best Team in Africa & the only Arabic-Speaking nation in the Top 5.
A) Promote free speech, international understanding & the English Language in Morocco.
B) Inspire a generation of debaters in North Africa while promoting the World Schools Style (WSS) debate format.

Our national coaching staff strongly believes that everyone in Morocco should have the chance to learn how to debate at least once in their life and therefore, we volunteer as much as possible all throughout Morocco to offer free workshops on debating and public speaking. We have volunteered our time and knowledge to public and private universities and schools and other events/camps throughout Morocco. We strive to enable as many Moroccans as possible to learn the power of words and find their voice.
We have volunteered in the following cities.
Agadir, Casablanca, Fez, Ifrane, Kenitra, Khouribga, Marrakech Mohamedia, Rabat, Tanger, Safi & Sale.
