Abderrahman Tlemçani, President-in-Office of GADEM.


The GADEM manifests its willingness to contribute to the efforts of national authorities to strengthen preventive measures in the areas of education, training and awareness-raising to help eliminate stereotypes that may still prevail in society. “We put our educational tools, the fruit of several years of experience on the ground, as well as the expertise of the members of the association in the service of this effort of awareness, prevention and education” adds the president of GADEM.
