Morocco

Dar-El-Kebria Orphanage, Kennatra

You will often find in small villages in Morocco the girls in the families are sent to work at an early age while the boys are educated. This is a social issue as the boys are expected to be better bread earners, whilst the girls education is often sacrificed for the families future. COH projects in the Moroccan orphanages provide food, shelter, and all necessities needed for the children to have an opportunity to grow and become successful individuals in their community. These are children abandoned by their families due to poverty and social, cultural, and tourist issues arising from the stigmas that plague Morocco. COH gives these children a real opportunity for a better life and to make a difference at the ground level in changing their future.
