Thanks to you, we made Black Friday count for something more important – and more lasting. Together, we funded a year of school for 100 girls in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
In rural areas of Morocco, only 26% of girls are enrolled in primary schools. Girls' education is limited by cultural and location constraints, with most schools in rural areas being miles from homes.
We are partnering with Education for All, a NGO advancing girls education in rural Morocco. Thanks to their provision of safe and supportive living environments, girls are able to continue their education and attend schools located near their boarding houses - reducing drop-out rates between the ages of 12-18.
With your partnership, we have funded a year of operations – building and running high-quality boarding houses in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, providing meals, hot showers, cozy beds, computer access, and dedicated local housemothers.
Education has proven to be the most effective way to fight gender inequality. What’s more, it reduces poverty and builds more open-minded, peaceful communities around the world.
Thank you for joining the effort. Together, we are investing in a future of strong women who will make this world a little brighter.
