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.
Our November newsletter is about the Mara Girls Leadership School: the 1st graduating class, a new Conservation Club, and an interview with the graduate Jackline about her dreams for the future. Also, a glimpse of a nearby 2020 project. Take a look!
"We are here at Mara Girls, to bring a lot of changes to the Maa community... to change them to realize that education is the best thing that is the key to the life of a young girl."

Students in the Morocco Library Project network participated in the 2019 Mediterranean Rooted Everyday short story competition, about preserving biodiversity through traditional practices. Enjoy these two stories that came in first in their age groups.
Stay tuned in 2020 for a Morocco Library Project environment-themed writing program.
