Summary

Dar Si Hmad's mobile Educational Caravan will provide educational-advancement opportunities to students ages 7-18 in landlocked, mountainous schools in Ait Baamrane, Southwest Morocco. This initiative combines two successful pilot-projects: a Water School that provided experiential learning about water and environment to children, and an E-learning Program that provided IT test prep to first generation girls in the region who were preparing for their nationally-issued high school exams.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Education in the rural part of Ait Baamrane is underdeveloped and underfunded. At the elementary-school level, pupils suffer from tedious learning, inadequate facilities, and Arabic language instruction in a predominantly Berber community. At the high-school level, female students live in rudimentary state-run dorms where they have limited educational choices, few resources to improve their knowledge, and no study aids to prepare them for exams necessary for university admission.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Caravan will bring IT resources to the region, train teachers in diverse and interactive curriculum, and provide instruction to students in their native Berber language. Children ages 7-13 will engage in a fun and participatory approach where natural resources and social sciences are tools used to foster a curiosity for their environment. Young girls ages 13-18 will be assisted via computer-based test-prep that will boost their chances of passing high school and attending university.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Caravan's main goal is to create life-long learning habits amongst the youth and encourage the communities to view girls' education as valuable as that of the boys. High school girls will pursue university studies in an environment that has traditionally put little value on girls' education. Children will be encouraged and equipped to influence how their environment is shaped and become active initiators to secure the future in their homeland.
