On the night of September 8, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit the High Atlas region where all our boarding houses are located. Five out of six of EFA's boarding houses. were destroyed. All students from the region have been temporarily relocated to schools in Marrakech until it is clear when the mountain schools will re-open. Your donations will enable us to continue providing temporary boarding house accommodation for EFA students as well as rebuild and repair the boarding houses.
A magnitude 6.8 earthquake has devastated the High Atlas region of Morocco. This is the area where Education For All run boarding houses so that teenage girls who live in remote areas can access the local schools and receive resources and support. All our boarding houses were severely damaged by the earthquake. One will need repairs and the remaining five will need to be rebuilt. We will also need to replace damaged furniture, computers etc.
This project will raise funds for the emergency repair and rebuilding of our boarding houses and replacement of their contents. All donations will go towards the short-term and long-term projects needed to rebuild the houses and ensure that the EFA students can continue accessing education.
The long-term impact will be rebuilding and repairing boarding the houses so we can continue to fulfil our mission to give teenage girls access to education.
