We were so excited to get to revisit our beloved Project Soar while we were in Marrakesh and catch up on the amazing things they are doing. Plus we were able to work on some projects!
We have been working with Project Soar for years now, and it's an incredibly powerful organization, working to empower Moroccan girls, giving them an open space to study and be, as well as educational tools, health resources, empowering affirmations, the chance to play sports and take art classes, and so much more. They strive to give these young women a voice and a chance to complete their education.
Our retreats guests were able to visit the center and see firsthand the impact of this organization, watching videos of these young women shouting mantras of strength as loud as they could! It's moving beyond belief. The image above is of a photo board displayed in the headquarters...and yes, that is Michelle Obama in one of the pictures. She visited last year, and shows firsthand how important it is to support young women that will be our future.
During the first of our two spring Marrakesh retreats this year, we were also able to work on a hand-on project to beautify the space. Under the guidance of EPM "Form+Focus" collaborator, Julian, guests joined in painting in some of the study rooms to give the place more identity.
Thanks to all of our guests to help us continue to give back to such an amazing organization!
