About us

Who we are

WHY EDUCATION FOR ALL?

Very few girls from the rural communities of the High Atlas Mountains get the opportunity of continuing their education beyond primary school. Secondary schools, mostly several kilometres away in larger towns, are not accessible to them because:

  1. Their parents cannot afford to pay for lodgings or transport near secondary schools
  2. Their parents do not have the confidence in existing facilities to entrust their daughters to be away from home.

WHY EDUCATE GIRLS?

Most of us have come from countries where we have been fortunate enough to take the lifelong gift of education for granted. Despite the Moroccan Government’s support of education policy and women’s rights, half of the country is not literate, and in rural areas, up to 83% of women are illiterate. We believe investing in girls’ education is essential, as an educated girl educates her family and whole community.

HOW WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Education For All (EFA) was established to help provide the opportunity of a secondary education for girls from the High Atlas mountain region. We build and run high-quality boarding houses for girls from 12–18. Everything is provided for free. We offer 3 nutritious meals a day, hot showers, cosy beds, access to computers, study support via an international volunteer programme and dedicated, local housemothers. The overall environment makes it easy for the girls to settle in and thrive in their studies. We see an average of 90% pass rate across all years and now have 50 EFA girls enrolled at university!
