inspiring literacy, building friendship

We develop English libraries in under-resourced communities of Morocco, in collaboration with local teachers. 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 young writers and partner on a platform headed by students for sharing their writing 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 the world. (where?)

Your tax-deductible support makes this possible.

My Second Home

"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."

In 2020!

In 2019, we focused on libraries for the Zagora region, launched a pilot project in environmental education, and developed the first English library in one of the most under-resourced regions of the country: the Rif Mountains. In 2020, we plan to expand our library program in the Rif, beginning at two public high schools, and to support students who are collecting oral stories from their community. We are also running a writing competition for students throughout the MLP network.


Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate the 5th anniversary of MLP!

"Reading is the most beautiful thing in life, simply because it is our window to the wide world out there and a bridge between cultures east and west."
