EFA Gala Dinner
In the evening of Saturday 27th November we will be holding a fund raising sumptuous gala dinner in aid of the festival’s official charity Education For All Morocco. All profits from ticket sales will go to the charity.
The Venue, ticket price and other details will be announced closer to the festival date.
Education For All Morocco (EFA) supports the education of teenage girls in Morocco’s remote, rural region of the High Atlas Mountains.
Founded in 2007, this UK / Moroccan charity ensures girls can access secondary education by building and running girls only boarding houses near the government high schools and colleges in the region. EFA have built 6 houses to date that can accommodate over 200 students, each with a dedicated staff of Moroccan housemothers, cooks, assistants and volunteers.
Since 2013, 135 girls have passed their Baccalaureate exams, 51 have gone on to enroll at University and 2 are studying for postgraduate Degrees.
By removing the barriers of poverty, distance and lack of transport, EFA enables these girls to realize their potential, lift the next generation out of illiteracy and make a positive impact in their communities and the country.
