Among our accomplishments so far this year
The public library for the Access Language Center in Biougra (southern Morocco) launched in January, boosting literacy in this rural region. This innovative community center hosts literacy classes and reading groups, and its library is the first public English library of this scale in rural Morocco.
We finished the Solar Home Library Project for the families of Mara Girls Leadership School living in earthen homes without power or light.
The Talek Primary School Learning Resource Center launched in February, and it's already a "hub of transformation" for this large and formerly underserved school. This center is a pilot for future school projects in the Maasai Mara.
The anthology from the 2020 MLP Short Story Competition was published, and the 2021 Competition has been under way all spring, bringing together and encouraging young voices from the far reaches of Morocco.
We ended the spring with an Earth Day Student Collaboration, supporting student environmental initiatives in Morocco, Kenya, California, and Pakistan. Each student group prepared a video of their project, which we shared in a virtual event on Earth Day evening.
