      Nik Do you anticipate any language problems? Are the interviews conducted in local Darija or Arabic? How much time will students have to acclimate to the language differences and will there be a local translator?

    • Cloe Medina Erickson
      Cloe Medina Erickson We have been working in this region on other programs since 2006 and work with a number of translators. We actually communicate with all of the women in Tamazight, as they do not have formal education and do not speak Darija or Arabic.

      Nik Has there been any commitment from the Ministry of Health regarding sanitation improvements? It's remarkable what you are doing but without longterm overhaul of the sanitation situation, particularly in the rural setting, there cannot be significant change in toilet habits asked of these women.

This project is being run by a socially-oriented for-profit company.

From time to time, GlobalGiving posts projects run by socially-oriented for-profit companies, whose work includes charitable activities in the public interest. ALL projects on GlobalGiving have a bonafide charitable purpose, and are required to submit extensive documentation and complete a thorough application process. GlobalGiving reviews all applications, and vets the projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and satisfy IRS guidelines for international grantmaking as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Provided projects meet all these criteria, the IRS allows public foundations such as GlobalGiving to make grants in support of this work.

Projects in this category are required to undergo an expenditure review - meaning they must detail the charitable activities for which they are requesting funding, and provide an actual review of how the funds were spent.
