Intrepid prescribes tablets
THE Intrepid Foundation has been supporting Education For All’s (EFA) Project Tablets during COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at improving education access for Moroccan girls.
The initiative strives to bring remote learning via the internet to rural students following three months of lockdown, funded directly by Intrepid Travel’s notfor-profit arm.
The students, located in the High Atlas mountains, were unable to attend school after they were closed across the country, and were unable to access education resources due to their remote location.
Last week, Intrepid Morocco General Manager Hala Benkhaldoun and the Education For All team hand-delivered 25 tablets to the girls to help them resume their education.
They now have access to online tutorial resources.
“Due to the pandemic’s impacts, we need to continue the organisation’s momentum to help these girls achieve their dreams,” said Intrepid Managing Director EMEA Zina Bencheikh.
“Morocco faces an 80% illiteracy rate among women, and EFA has made education accessible for young girls in remote areas where there are typically barriers to learning,” she added.
