- ELT-Consultants has been supporting Dar Moustaqbel since January 2017 with English classes for its 55 girls. Opened in Marrakech in September 2016, Dar Moustaqbel has become a safe haven to girls from the southern Atlas Mountains in Morocco. A place where disadvantaged girls can prosper while pursuing higher education, Dar Moustaqbel means ‘The House of the Future’, and provides girls the building blocks they need for successful integration into the workforce. Due to the inadequacies of state schools, girls often lack the basic knowledge they need for a successful entry in higher education. Dar Moustaqbel does its utmost best to help the girls catch up. Education, discipline and personal development are at the centre of attention. Apart from language classes, the girls are provided with tutors teaching subjects like statistics and bookkeeping. Activities program features a computer skills course, yoga, cycling, encounters with ground-breaking scientists and inspiring mentors, and a program on entrepreneurship of opportunities. Living at Dar Moustaqbel enables young disadvantaged girls to fully focus on their tertiary studies. Instead of the village life of marriage and motherhood, they choose to use their talents to study, graduate and get a good job. Marriage and motherhood will come later. This way they can build another future for themselves and their families. ELT-Consultants is honoured to be able to be part of this innovative programme. Dar Moustaqbel is an NGO registered in the Netherlands and Morocco: www.moustaqbel.org
