Mission of Project Soar
Project Soar’s mission is to empower marginalized teen girls to become the leaders of today and tomorrow.
This project will enhance the leadership skills of girls in under-served sites across Morocco through the establishment of Girl Leader Clubs and a unique empowerment program.
Why We Love This Project
The Soar solution is a holistic, rights-based approach to propel young girls to forge their own path and soar. Their unique, 25-workshop empowerment curriculum focuses on these five modules: Value, Voice, Body, Rights, and Path. Their focus on helping marginalized teen girls, some with physical and mental disabilities, to become their own change agents has been highly successful in challenging gender norms, overcoming barriers to higher education, and creating the leaders of tomorrow.
