Thanks to the financial and technical assistance of various governmental and non-governmental organizations, the women of the Sefrou region have benefited from Arabic language literacy and numeracy classes, weaving training, lessons in natural dyeing techniques, and various business workshops focusing on topics like how to form an association or a cooperative, product development, marketing, and how to adapt new technology. All of our community outreach activities are coordinated through our sister non-profit organization, the Golden Buttons Association. The association has a membership of approximately 250 women from Sefrou, as well as Bhalil, El Menzel, and other neighboring villages. The objectives of the association are as follows: – To train and organize local craftswomen – To provide technical and professional training to its members through literacy classes, organizing excursions and conferences – To network with all associations that resemble our association including NGO’s that can help this association directly or indirectly – To develop productive units for the participants in all sectors, including cooking, weaving, and baking – To improve access to services for rural women
The Golden Buttons Association believes strongly in developing the next generation of women leaders. In collaboration with the Peace Corps, three summer camps have been held over the last three years. The Peace Corps has developed a leadership curricula titled GLOW, Girls Leading Our World, that encourages young girls to think about a future where they will be the next doctors, lawyers, politicians, star athletes, and business owners of Morocco.
