English Language Fellow Jennifer Borch visited Project Soar in Doaur Ladaam to lead a running workshop and provide feedback on the sports curriculum being developed for Project Soar in a Box. Project Soar is a non-profit organization that empowers Moroccan adolescent girls to continue their education by providing them with after-school academic support, as well as life skills and leadership training.

The organization is hoping to expand their program beyond Marrakech through the “Soar in a Box” program, which will provide standardized curriculum and materials to enable trainers throughout the country to implement the program with local populations.

Alongside her daughter, Borch led two running sessions with two groups of girls – teaching them about stretching, muscle groups, running form, and pacing. They played games and staged relay races that incorporated English skills and phrases while also keeping the girls active.
