Pillars for the Home and the Country: #PledgeForParity

Today is our final installment in the #PledgeForParity campaign. We hope you'll join our #RISE participants in working toward gender equity.


Pillars in the Home; Pillars in the Country
On Tuesday in celebration of International Women's Day, we met 19-year-old business student Salma Edrif. Today, hear her joint message with fellow RISE participant Amal Oumimoune about gender equality in Morocco:




Happy International Women's Day
Walid Ait Kaddi thanks the many women who support men around the world and wishes everyone a happy Women's Day.







 Thank you, Souad and Jade
And as our final #PledgeForParity, a special thank you to and acknowledgement of Dar Si Hmad staff members Jade Lansing and Souad Kadi. Every day, these women overcome challenges to inspire people around Morocco to be everything they can be. Here's to you, and to the many women who are making our world a more equitable and sustainable place. From all of us at Dar Si Hmad, Happy Women's Day - Tuesday, this weekend, and always.
