The Moroccan National Debate Team (MNDT) is a first of its kind in North Africa public speaking and debate team that competes in English language debates, and is governed by Morocco Debate Association (MDA). MDA is a non-profit organization based in Casablanca and was founded by Soufiane Choubani. 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 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.
Our other activities also include hosting debate & public speaking clubs and competition in different cities and each summer, we host the Moroccan-Youth Debate Camp in different cities, which was the first Debate Camp in North Africa. We are also the proud organizers of the Moroccan Open Debate Tournament (MODT), which was the first-ever international high school and World Schools Style (WSS) tournament in North Africa.
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) format.
C) Organize & host public speaking & debate workshops & competitions.
D) Achieve international excellence with Team Morocco.
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.
