Joël Bouzou, President-Founder of Peace and Sport, said:
"I warmly congratulate TIBU Maroc on its victory in the category "Innovative Action of the Year". Their "Sa7ti Friyadti" program, based on the use of new technologies, has made it possible to disseminate innovative educational content during the health crisis and thus encourage young people to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. We hope that this award can help to promote the recognition of TIBU Maroc at the international level."
Mohamed Amine Zariat, Ashoka Fellow and Founding President of the organization TIBU Morocco, mentioned:
"We are delighted to be awarded the prize for the "Innovative Action of the Year"".

I would like to thank the members of the jury as well as Peace and Sport for organizing the celebration of the Peace and Sport Awards 2020".
