Project Soar is A non-profit organization that empowers teen girls to be the leaders of today and tomorrow. 40 Project Soar chapters support nearly 1000 teen girls across Morocco.
Today, on Giving Tuesday, Project Soar has launched a campaign on the Global Giving platform to raise funds for its Empowerment Headquarters in a village outside Marrakech. Teen girls from 24 semi-rural communities attend empowerment workshops, academic support, and Girl Leader Club meetings here every week. But these walls are more than a building - they represent a safe place for girls to develop confidence and learn valuable leadership skills so they can help change the world.
