This International Women’s Day, the High Atlas Foundation team celebrates all women, women leaders, women who are working to create a more equal future in spite of this current context in which we live — a context in which deep-seated gender inequalities have exacerbated the consequences of the pandemic for women and girls around the world.
During the upcoming week, HAF’s Women’s Empowerment trainers are facilitating our 35th Imagine Women’s Empowerment Workshop since 2016. The women who have attended these 4-day Imagine workshops over these years have gone on to create income-generating cooperatives, engage for the first time in parent associations at their children’s schools, and participate in community planning that has led to sustainable development initiatives in rural villages. They’ve gone back to school, grown in self-confidence, and reclaimed their own inherent agency to make the decisions that are best for themselves, for now, and for tomorrow.
It is because of your support that we are able to grow our impact through and beyond our Imagine workshops toward our shared long-term goal of gender equality in Morocco and throughout the world.
We thank you so much for your generosity, as always. And we hope you enjoy this months’s newsletter, which is dedicated to women.
