Our WorldTowning Family spent seven weeks in Morocco. Probably one of the most impactful seven weeks of our travels to date. We fell in love with the people, the culture and the spirit that is present in all of Morocco!
During our time in Fez we discovered that there is no public library for children in the Medina (historic city center). The only library option for children is a private space which is organized and run by a few individuals who feel that the children of the Medina need books. They believe the books will inspire them to learn more about the world and develop their potential.
Upon further research what we discovered was a warm and inviting space that welcomed all of the children of the medina and gave them the tools to read at their own leisure about a huge range of topics. The space is small, but the children have made this their second home, seeking time to enter and read during school breaks and on the weekend.
We knew that we had to get involved. As a private organization, they operate solely by the generosity of their benefactors. We set up a time to create a promotional video and have a craft session with the kids. It was a remarkable experience. The kids are so inspiring as they really do believe that anything is possible thanks to the exposure they have to this library.
The library has a remarkable group of individuals who cared about the future of Fez so much that they created this special space. But this space can only exist with the support of generous individuals like yourself to buy books, pay for the rent, utilities, and the salaries of the librarians.
If you have the ability to provide a donation it would greatly be appreciated. Each contribution directly benefits a child and their future by way of books.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
