The seventh edition of the “Sahraouiya” rally, a solidarity and sports challenge for women, will be held on March 13-20 in Dakhla, under the motto of active solidarity.
Initiated under the High Patronage of HM King Mohammed VI, the “Sahraouiya” rally aims to promote the values of solidarity, through a competition that marks all those who live the experience, in Morocco and around the world, the organizers said in a statement.
Organized by the association “Dakhla Lagoon for the development of sport and cultural animation” and the Dakhla Attitude group, “Sahraouiya” is a real sporting and solidarity springboard that brings together teams from different regions of Morocco, but also from the African continent and Europe.
This edition will see the participation of 80 women from Morocco, in addition to African and European teams from Mali, Rwanda, Ghana, Belgium and France who will compete for the benefit of 40 national and international associations.
Pursuing its goal of opening to Africa, “Sahraouiya” is asserting itself as a tool of sports diplomacy and solidarity, particularly through the participation of teams from friendly African countries, as part of the partnership initiated with the Moroccan Agency for International Cooperation.
These women will compete in the dunes of Dakhla and its captivating waves, the statement said.
“Sport becomes, through Sahraouiya, a vector of affirmation of women, regardless of their origins or culture, while combining physical activities, emotions and discovery of a region that defies the most beautiful landscapes in the world, it added.
From edition to edition “Sahraouiya” has become a real lever for social action, through the commitment of participants, representing associations from Morocco and abroad, but also through our sponsors, who have accompanied us for seven years and those who joined us recently.”
