This delightful email was sent to the tour company and we thought we would share it with you.
The concert was a resounding success. The Governor of Sidi Bernoussi offered the group a trophy and said that "in this Soccer World Cup atmosphere, you have not won the world cup, but you won the hearts of all the citizens of Casablanca". Both sides cried when listening to the national anthems sung by the other country's kids. People said that this event should be marked with gold on a stone in Hassan Skalli's Cultural center history. We also had a fruitful and wonderful gathering at Sid Moumen Cultural Center in the afternoon.
We had a wonderful and colorful event at the restaurant. The youth had the opportunity to eat Moroccan, watch a great Moroccan folklore music and dance from all regions of the country, dance with the Moroccans and interact with our IDMAJ youth and community organizers.
I am sure this would be a very lasting friendship created by this great initiative for which we are so grateful to you. Your youth are just fantastic. Our youth would like to have ANIMA in Sidi Moumen. Any possible cooperation to create a section here or send someone to teach them? Just a thought! But a serious one!!
We missed you here yesterday.Take good care.
