Morocco Debate Association


The Moroccan National Debate Team (MNDT) was the first of its kind in North Africa and we compete in international debating and public speaking competitions in English and Arabic. The national team is governed by Morocco Debate Association (MDA), which is a non-profit organization based in Casablanca. The MNDT was the 1st ever North African nation to compete in a European Championship and the World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC).
The team is selected each year in September or October, where the most outstanding students who display potential in speech and debate are chosen, and then trained for months to compete at the most prestigious competitions around the world. Student who go threw are our team have their life changed forever and we take tremendous pride in developing the next generation of Moroccan leaders and one of the best national debate teams in Africa.
