What is our vision?
We want to give girls from rural Morocco the chance of a secondary Education because we believe that everyone has the right to an education, and if you educate a girl, you educate the next generation as well.
At present, few girls from rural communities in Morocco continue their education after primary school. Secondary schools are not accessible to them, mainly because they live too far away from the few schools, and their families cannot afford transport fees or the available boarding facilities.
Our boarding house project is a simple, efficient and cost effective way to face the challenges facing girls’ access to schools. The EFA boarding houses are completely free. Not only that, but they are a place where they additional study support from volunteers, access to computers and lots of space to develop personal skills so they have the ability and confidence to aim aim as high as University. We now have 50 girls enrolled at University (in 2017) which shows this extra support is working!
We are proud to be working towards 1-6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, namely the key areas of poverty, education and gender equality.
Making this happen will be a major accomplishment and will create a legacy to be proud of. please make a donation; gift aid is automatically reclaimed if you are a UK tax payer.
