Education For All (EFA) was established to help provide the opportunity of a secondary education for girls from the High Atlas mountain region. They build and run high-quality boarding houses for girls from 12–18. Everything is provided for free. They offer 3 nutritious meals a day, hot showers, cosy beds, access to computers, study support via an international volunteer programs and dedicated, local housemothers. The overall environment makes it easy for the girls to settle in and thrive in their studies. They see an average of 90% pass rate across all years and now have 50 EFA girls enrolled at university. For every participant going on our Morocco retreats, $300-$500 of the total amount of the cost of the retreat will be donated directly to EFA Morocco and our goal is to match every $300-$500 donation.
With your help, we will be able to meet that goal.
Every donation, no matter how big or small, is greatly needed and appreciated.
Please help us to build a generation of educated and empowered young women across the globe.
