In our US MEPI-funded employability training program, RISE, Agadir's young people learned about the significance of 8 March and came together to discuss the importance of gender equality. Reflecting this year's theme for the UN-sponsored Women's Day, RISE participants made their own pledges for and statements about gender parity. We'll be highlighting several of them over the next few days.
Abdellah Eidhaj was introduced on this blog last week with his RISE Profile. Asked about the importance of women in his life and the world, Abdellah declared "No peaceful society without gender equality".
From all the RISE Participants, yesterday, today, and every day - Happy International Women's Day!
We'll be sharing other Pledges for Parity from Morocco's youth over the next few days - stay tuned on social media for the newest from Dar Si Hmad:
