Happy International Women'''s Day!
"If we succeed in empowering girls, we'll succeed in everything else" 
~ Desmund Tutu, human rights activist
Today we want to celebrate the achievements of women and girls across the world and empower future female leaders. At the Dar Taliba ethnobotanical school garden, we are delivering garden trainings for the girls to learn more about Amazigh indigenous plant knowledge from their communities in the High Atlas mountains. Through these trainings, students are preserving local cultural heritage, learning new valuable skills and building solidarity and connections that will sustain them into the future.

“I really enjoy working with the land and learning new techniques during the garden trainings,” Dar Taliba student Meryam says. “I would love to pursue my studies in agriculture and create my own project one day”.
We want to encourage students like Meryam to become the next generation of women conservationists, and International Women's Day is the perfect day to do so! Join us and support 143 students at Dar Taliba, an all-girls boarding house enabling students from remote villages of the Ourika Valley to continue their education beyond primary school.
In honour of International Women's Day, GlobalGiving is giving out over $10,000 in matching funds and bonus prizes today.
Your donation today will also help the Dar Taliba students earn a spot in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign, an opportunity to gain support and funding for all of 2019. Donations will support the continuation of garden trainings, the purchase of materials and seeds, and admission fees to expand the student body in the next school year. 
Thank you!
