(Charity Registration No. 1124500)
In this post rather than featuring a personality I’m highlighting a wonderful charity.
Last Christmas, I visited (with my family) Kasbah Du Toubkal, a Moroccan award-winning eco-lodge and Berber Hospitality Centre 40 miles south of Marrakech and set near to the most beautiful Atlas Mountains range. A UK travel company called Discover Ltd (www.discover.ltd.uk) assisted the local community in setting up the lodge to support the local tourism economy.
Whilst I was there I learned about Education for All Morocco, (also supported by Discover), which provides opportunities for girls in rural Morocco to continue their education beyond primary level.
Their message is “Educate a girl and you educate the next generation”.
I’m ashamed to say I picked up the Education for All Morocco leaflet intending to make a donation when I arrived back home and then I forgot all about it until recently when I came across it home. I’ve made my donation today, thinking of all the Moroccan girls who have dreams to make the world a better place. Perhaps you’d like to send the charity a seasonal donation too?
