MARCO was created to, on the one hand, encourage a better understanding between companies, institutions, governments, brands and destinations; and stakeholders, consumers, employees and travellers on the other.
HOW WE WORK
We facilitate access of young talents
to first level university scholarships and internships in large companies.
We build country brand for regions, cities and countries not sufficiently known.
Through optimal communication, we build bridges and foster understanding.
We are embedded in MARCO's raison d’etre. The most awarded and highly-rated independent global agency of the last decade, specialising in brand building and reputation management: more than an agency, MARCO is an entity for whom geographical borders have ceased to exist in communication, bypassing linguistic frontiers, which today unites countries and continents.
From the Kenz Foundation, together with MARCO, a world expert in the field, we jointly finance the construction of country brands for cities, countries or regions which have yet to be discovered.
We encourage and promote access to scholarships for universities in different countries and regions. We unlock the potential of young people as an engine for understanding, intercultural dialogue, integration and development.
We accelerate young talents’ access to professional internships in different companies at an international level. We foment a better understanding, unearth talent, promote socio-professional integration and aid the growth of the business fabric.
With our actions, we go beyond the boundaries of education. We shed light on life experiences for the enrichment and growth of young people. We contribute to building their future, which is, in the end, the future for all of us.
Optimal communication and quality education are essential to building a better understanding. We bring together companies, institutions, governments, brands and destinations, on the one hand, and stakeholders, consumers, employees and travellers, on the other.
This understanding contributes to the elimination of prejudice and motives for hatred. It brings us beyond areas of confrontation and racism.
We start by building bridges between Africa and Europe; two continents so close to each other, and with strong historical ties, where MARCO presents itself as the go-to agency.
This is just the beginning – we have a global mission. Our next challenge is to generate links with the Americas, where MARCO also has a large footprint.
The Kenz Foundation was forged from our network of partnerships.
Our partnerships were born out of cooperation and collaboration between companies, institutions, governments, brands and destinations together with stakeholders, consumers, employees and travellers.
a global model
We implement this partnership model globally, and that is why we have partners in different countries and regions.
We seek the support of companies that are committed to incorporating talent into their rank and promoting it by offering professional internships. We work with universities that offer scholarships for those who are thirsty to learn, foundations, organisations, governments and other institutions that, align with our mission, who wish to join forces to build a world where understanding prevails; and partners who want to sponsor our projects and subsidise them in the belief that they will contribute to building better understanding and leave no one behind.
Our actions are informed by a meritocratic vision. We promote inclusion and equal opportunities regardless of gender, origin or socio-economic status; always with merit as the deciding factor.
As actors aiming for a better understanding, we are guided by a collaborative working philosophy. We are part of society and are concerned about its future evolution. The climate crisis and access to decent and quality education are global challenges that need to be addressed immediately as a matter of priority. At KENZ we are ready to walk hand in hand with those who want to face them.
