Developing Educational Opportunities in Morocco

The tutoring of high school students in the Taza Province is in full swing and the results are stunning. Since January, we've added a sixth program participant, and two additional tutors, Mustapha and Khalid.  Hanan is still coordinating the program and reports that the students are "dedicated to their studies, eager to learn, and look forward to bright futures.  The Bernard Mejean Fund offers our students a great opportunity to meet their goals and improve their performance in school."  Our Global Giving donors are providing these students with a unique opportunity to take control of their futures and gain access to further educational and development opportunities.  The students' report cards are in, and all six have earned high marks.  

To help our supporters get to know a little bit about the students, we've asked three to send some information about their studies and interests.  Here's what they shared:

  • Fatima is studying to obtain a Physical Sciences Baccalaureate and she enjoys sports, reading, music and travel.
  • Smahane is studying to obtain a Physical Sciences Baccalaureate and she enjoys sports, reading, and travel.
  • Ikrame is studying to obtain a Physical Sciences Baccalaureate and she enjoys sports, reading, music and travel.

The students are working towards attending university in the future.  They've learned valuable lessons through service-learning activities including volunteering with non-profits, including with the local orphanage and homeless shelter. This volunteer program prepares students for a promising future by developing their professional skills and engaging them with the associations that provide human services to their communities.  Students have also been awarded the chance to participate in youth development forums and to meet with community leaders.  Your support makes it possible for the Bernard Mejean Fund and the High Atlas Foundation to support the education goals of these dedicated students to flourish.  Thank you for helping to create brighter futures for Moroccan youth.
