Women, film and funds.

So many of my family, friends and blog readers have asked how they can help us do our work here in Morocco. Well, here's an easy answer!

My friend, Peace Corps compatriot and fellow Gender and Development Committee member Cortney has launched an amazing project to raise awareness of women's rights in Morocco. What started as a plan to film some successful Moroccan women, to promote leadership and gender equality among youths, has morphed into a budding NGO (nongovernmental organization) of female Moroccan leaders, a network to help them effect change in their communities, their country and themselves.

To get the film portion of the project off the ground, Cortney is seeking funds from folks back in the States. Even $5 or $10 can help us toward our goal. Go here for more information and to make a donation:

You can read more about the project at the NGO's new web site:

Thanks for your support!
