The Al-Amal Association for Development and Training was founded in 2007 by Salwa Jabli, an amazing Moroccan woman whose vision was to empower local women in her community to become more self-sufficient in supporting themselves and their families. Al Amal’s training activities include literary courses, computer classes, traditional handcrafting and other important skills. Recently, the Al-Amal Association has expanded their services by providing support and guidance for victims of domestic violence.
The Al-Amal Association is just one of many organizations for future policy makers and advocates for women’s development. Those interested should pursue their passion by contacting ISA Service-Learning for more information on programs in Women’s Empowerment.
