Project Soar's mission is simple: to empower teenage girls in the developing world! We provide 35 lessons of empowerment to keep the girls in school and to prepare them for more productive, fulfilled futures.
Project Soar provides a 35 workshop empowerment curriculum in many sites across Morocco, reaching over 400 girls, as well as academic support courses. Additionally at the headquarters in Marrakech, Project Soar offers critical after-school programming to develop a strong sense of self and increase their chances of academic success. There are also a range of activities available such as sports, a reading club, and a safe space for the girls to complete homework, play games, and spend time with friends.
Additionally, Project Soar offers a wide range of non-academic activities aimed at empowering girls. Our athletics program introduces girls to a diverse set of sports, and our health classes cover an array of topics essential for adolescent girls. We also provide Project Soar girls with innovative period kits to help manage their menstruation. To spark creativity, we hold art classes throughout the year, and organize field trips to be expose girls to new ideas and experiences.
Summers are devoted to a series of week long activities that build girls empowerment from different angles. All these activities combine to support the overall well-being of adolescent girls.
