About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

As I have been living in North Africa for 7 years , through my study at University , I have got friends who were dismissed from their family , other drop down the school , other see that no reason to continue study because after marriage she would be only house-wife. The problem come from North African traditional reinforce by the religion .In Morocco about 70% of young female traditionally believe to be depending on husband as house-wife.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

This main vision is to inspire young female Moroccans particularly Meknasi students towards achievement of equal opportunity between gender and to support Intercultural citizenship and its education. We have club at faculty of science and EST for specific training for female , we hire national coaches both male and female to train young girls about concept of equal opportunity . This specific training is ongoing for each academic year between faculty of Science at EST. We organize conference ,seminar , forum for same issue by inviting advocate female to encourage our participants.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Women in positions of power within an organisation serve as strong role models for younger girls. When girls see women from their own communities in leadership positions, the possibilities for their own accomplishments become more real. Women leaders also play an important role in ensuring that girls feel safe and that their needs are met. Many coaches and trainers with whom Women Win has spoken say that girls feel more comfortable conveying their needs to women coaches, trainers and referees rather than male ones. For example, if a girl is being abused at home, in many cases she is more likely to feel comfortable communicating her situation to a women rather than a male.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

The project impact is to invest in women is recognized not only as the right thing to do but also the smart thing to do. Mounting evidence demonstrates that increases in women’s income lead to improvements in children’s health, nutrition and education. But more rigorous evaluation of projects aimed at women’s economic development is crucial to maintain their support and apply lessons learned to future projects.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

In Morocco. Prioritizing women for these roles creates leadership opportunities, where such opportunities may otherwise be scarce or non-existent. In all levels of organisational leadership, women have a chance to strengthen decision-making, confidence and management skills over time. Some sport programmes recruit women as staff members.Mounting evidence demonstrates that increases in women’s income lead to improvements in children’s health, nutrition , education and support services to women micro-entrepreneurs in Morocco
