Education for All Morocco
EDUCATION FOR ALL is a legally constituted association in Morocco that has been formed to help provide educational opportunities to girls in Morocco.
Very few girls from the rural communities of the High Atlas Mountains get the opportunity of continuing their education beyond primary school.
Colleges, mostly several kilometers away in larger towns, are not accessible to them for two main reasons:
1. Their parents cannot afford to pay for lodgings near colleges
2. Their parents do not have the confidence in existing facilities near colleges to entrust their daughters to be away from home.
Education for All has been established to help provide the opportunity of a college education for girls from rural Moroccan communities. Its first project, opened in 2007, was to facilitate access to secondary education for up to 36 girls from the remote villages of the High Atlas Mountains by building a boarding house for them in the town of Asni.
In September 2009 a second boarding house was opened in an even more remote area of the High Atlas 100km from Marrakech in the town of Talaat n’ Yacoub with the aim of providing the opportunity of a college education for a further 36 girls who would otherwise not have this opportunity.
There are many ways to help make education a reality for more girls in Morocco. Check out the Education for All website for ways to get involved.
