inspiring literacy, building friendship
We develop English libraries in communities of Morocco that need them and want them, in collaboration with local teachers (where?). These libraries and the English clubs we partner with are a "space for great things to happen," including a love of literature and civic and environmental engagement. We also encourage and support young writers and share their voices with others in Morocco and beyond. Our goal is to inspire the joy of learning and to help motivated young people know they can make a positive difference in this world.
PLANS FOR LATE 2020 & 2021: A public library in Biougra, a school library in northern Morocco, and an expanded national writing competition for students.
Your tax-deductible support makes this possible.
Spring 2020 MLP Writing Competition
"Draw your ideas with those letters... All that matters is that you put yourself in that text. Put all the things that you feel and that you think about in those lines.... Because love and passion is all what makes us happy and proud of ourselves."
~ Hiba Bakertit, Taroudant, author of "Aiden"
The competition is over now, and we have 21 great stories to put in the libraries!

"MLP is a project that made me think about sharing what I have learned through my experience, and helping others in my community to feel and benefit exactly as I did."
