Aviation for Humanity visited the Girls Shelter in the Ziat neighborhood of Fes, Morocco on June 2, 2017. The Shelter provides a safe space for girls (ages 7 – 18) who are orphans or whose families do not have the resources to house them. Without the Shelter, these girls would be homeless.
We met the girls in their colorful courtyard surrounded by lemon trees. Under the hot Moroccan sun, they waited in line to receive their individual packets of school supplies. On behalf of our generous donors, Aviation for Humanity delivered over 500 crayons, markers, pencils, and pens as well as clothing, packets of chalk, notepads, construction paper, coloring books and other arts and crafts material. The girls were appreciative of the supplies and interactive with our volunteers.
Aviation for Humanity would like to thank all of those that provided school supplies and monetary donations. Thank you to Kaoutar and David for organizing the visit to the Shelter. And, the biggest thank you goes to all the girls of the Shelter. The visit was an honor.
The world is one big community linked by aviation with all of our successes rooted in education.
The girls' faces are blurred to protect their identity.
