Morocco, Education, 10/5/1999
A pilot project to fight illiteracy has been launched Monday in Akrache, a shanty town near Rabat.
The experiment, to benefit poor women, is sponsored by the National Union of Moroccan Women whose goals mainly target the integration of women in development and struggle against poverty.
The 10 month program, will in a first phase dispense literacy courses to some 40 women who will also be informed on family planning, child health, girls education and hygiene.
The courses will take place not in a traditional school but in one of the houses on the spot.
The project is initiated by the embassies of Sweden and Columbia in Rabat in cooperation with Philip Morris Inc. which financed the training of two teachers and the purchase of the necessary books and other school equipment.
