Advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, launched, on Thursday in Sidi Kacem, a campaign to support female property owners in Morocco, as part of the Women's Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative.

The MCC Compact works to grant land titles to about 67,000 hectares of collective land, with a view to reaching about 56,000 beneficiaries in the Gharb and Al Haouz regions.

Trump chaired a ceremony to sign two agreements between several partners for an amount of $6 million, covering measures to improve legal rights and employability of Moroccan women through trainings in agricultural production, financial management and the fight against illiteracy.

The first agreement is meant to establish a set of mechanisms to improve agricultural production methods in the rural world. It also provides for the organization of training campaigns and caravans in the regions in order to strengthen the capacities of the targeted categories through vocational training and agricultural production techniques.

The second framework agreement focuses on the functional literacy program by using approaches that facilitate learning during the land ownership process. 

On this occasion, Ivanka Trump said that investing in women leaves the way for investment wide open, affirming that land ownership remains a sine qua non condition for stimulating economic and social development.

For the record, the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative was launched by US President Donald Trump with the objective of empowering 50 million women worldwide by 2025.
