Bringing schools closer to rural children
In Morocco, access to schooling in rural areas is more difficult than in urban areas. Young people in rural areas, and particularly young girls, are especially vulnerable to dropping out of school. This is due to lack of access to secondary schools and a lack of accommodation facilities.
To remedy this, the Foundation has implemented the Dar Taliba (Student's Home) program: a pioneering platform relying on a network of residential schools. Located in the vicinity of schools, middle schools and high schools, they offer young girls adequate accommodation and supervision.
This approach has been extended to rural boys and children of nomadic tribes. It has served as a gateway for academic achievement, enabling young people to attend high schools and universities in urban areas.
