Challenge

Children in Morocco, especially those from single-parent families, are in danger of losing their family support and falling into a situation of exclusion. These children come from households where the father is absent and their mothers struggle to care for their families and make ends meet. Single mothers in Morocco are often in precarious situations and rejected by their communities. These 100 children from laayoune need your help to prevent abandonment and protect their rights.

Solution

This project helps single-parent families in laayoune by providing material and psychological assistance,as well as education and training opportunities for the mothers. The goal is to improve living conditions for these families and empower the mothers to achieve autonomy and provide for their children. The program focuses on strengthening the technical and emotional capacities of single mothers and supporting their economic independence through vocational training and professional integration.

Long-Term Impact

Education is a mean to break the cycle of marginalization, poverty, violence and family breakdown and it helps children to develop the necessary capabilities they need to life in dignity and with respect. Education empowers women with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to find jobs and ensure their children's basic needs. Education is also essential for these children to grow up and become trained and efficient adults who won't have any integration problems.
