Lions in Action: Giving Women in Morocco a Better Life
About 20 percent of Morocco’s population lives at or below the poverty line. Many adult women – including a growing number of single mothers – never had the opportunity to attend school, and lack job skills such as the ability to read or write. Local Lions wanted to provide hope to these families by establishing a school for women that includes a preschool for their children. Learn how Lions made this project happen. And get “Tips and Tools” you can use to do a project like this in your community.
