The GAD Committee continues the Our Hands campaign to highlight women’s work in Morocco with this week’s theme: Education. Education in Morocco extends beyond the traditional school setting. Women pass down knowledge to Moroccan youth in a multitude of ways. Skills, traditions, and stories are shared and taught in associations, in women’s centers and youth centers, in the household, in religious locales, etc. When we look beyond the conventional sites of learning, it is evident that women have been educating Moroccan youth for generations in indispensable ways, preserving culture and history, and advancing Moroccan society’s capacity for growth.
