OUR MISSION is to inspire the next generation to be learners, critical thinkers, and ultimately ethical leaders and changemakers. We collaborate at the grassroots level with teachers, students, conservationists, and community members in rural areas of Morocco and Kenya to develop high-quality libraries and programs in literacy and environmental education that empower young people with knowledge.
GOALS FOR 2019-20
tech + web workshop
library development, Phase 2
expand library access
to nearby public schools
Last year, we developed the first English library in one of the most under-resourced regions of the country: the Rif Mountains. This year, we will expand our library program in this critical area.
wildlife club for Mara Girls, a pilot project for the region
workshop + nature journalism for young Moroccans
We're happy to report that we have earned the 2019 Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world's largest source of information on nonprofits.
