A Flying Camel Movement for Women’s Education in Morocco

November 21, 2013

We invite you to be a part of the Flying Camel Movement!

Mushmina’s Flying Camel is a Women’s Training Center in Oued Zem Morocco – a space where women artisans  gather to sustain their crafts, train young women in the community, and work together in efforts to attain financial stability; thus enabling their families, their communities, and their culture to prosper.

Workshop Oued Zem (5)According to the World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Index Morocco ranks in the lowest percentile in measuring economic participation (128th of 135 countries) and educational attainment for women (115th of 135). Many women in Morocco do not have bank accounts and are often forced to stay in bad marriages because they do not have the economic resources to make other choices. We recognize how crucial education and new skill development is in equipping women with the skills necessary to participate in the labor force, thus enabling them to have more power over their lives.

Based in rural Morocco, the Flying Camel Women’s Training Center serves thirty women in the region of Khrouribga, Oued Zem and Boujad in learning employable skills; sewing, pattern-making, computers, and business 101 for artisans.
