Campaign in Rural Morocco

Some impressions of the campaign for empowerment of rural girls we participated in together with the Association El Amane pour le Développement de la Femme. It took place in several communities at the feet of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, specifically Amizmiz, Ourika and Tidili Mesfioua.

Illiteracy rates for rural women and girls in Morocco remain as high as 90 percent. Our approach of making vital information accessible using solar powered audio players was highly welcome. We introduced the URIDU Players to local associations and rural women in order to prepare the distribution later this year.

We were thankful for the friendliness and hospitality of the berber communities.
