The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative’s (MEPI) Project Soar is one of the most successful women empowerment projects in Morocco. The project empowers nearly 700 teenage girls from 26 economically disadvantaged semi-rural villages in Morocco where many teenage girls drop out of school to marry. With MEPI’s support, Project Soar has expanded to 28 sites across Morocco and has offered 740 academic hours of support, 1134 hours of empowerment, 280 girls leadership camps and 13 girls clubs.
