Today we visited a women's shelter on the outskirts of Marrakech. They are doing a fantastic job by supporting and empowering women escaping violent or abusive situations, such as rape and domestic violence. We will collaborate with the association by distributing our URIDU Player to rural women in their area. And we will also provide psychological training to their staff. Thanks to the contribution of some dear friends we were able to donate 40 kg of children's clothing for the 12 toddlers that live in the shelter with their mothers.

Child marriage affects millions of girls around the world, but the problem has become increasingly common among child refugees. So this teen took it upon herself to help combat the practice — from her refugee camp. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/syrian-teen-campaign-child-marriage-refugee-camp_us_5718fb4de4b024dae4f14d20?ir=Teen§ion=india&utm_hp_ref=teen

Karibu! (You just learned how to say "Welcome" in Swahili!) We just added Swahili as the 6th language to URIDU.COM! Which means that more than a billion people can now understand the vital information that we provide for rural women. Better yet: the audio recordings in Swahili are also almost ready to be used in our solar-powered URIDU Players. A big thank you ("Asante!") to all the volunteers that made this possible! Check it out at http://www.uridu.com

URIDU is proudly collaborating with the Community Development Network (CDN https://www.facebook.com/codevnet/) on a Menstrual Hygiene Project for school girls in Cameroon. Girls in Cameroon miss 4 days of school per month on average when they menstruate because of a lack of access to menstrual hygiene knowledge and resources. The CDN will distribute menstrual hygiene supplies to girls along with educational materials to empower them with knowledge about menstruation and their bodies. The workshops and educational materials are based on URIDU contents in French and English. Read more at http://www.uridu.org/news/

Some impressions of the campaign for empowerment of rural girls we participated in. It took place in several communities at the feet of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, specifically Amizmiz, Ourika and Tidili Mesfioua. We were thankful for the friendliness and hospitality of the berber communities. We introduced the URIDU Players to local associations and rural women in order to prepare the distribution later this year.

Halima Oulami of the Assocation El Amane presenting the URIDU Player to Berber women in Amizmiz as part of a campaign to empower rural girls. Amizmiz (أمزميز AMZ-meez) is a small town in Morocco approximately 55 kilometers south of Marrakesh. It lies at the foot of the High Atlas mountain range. Geographically and economically, Amizmiz acts as a juncture point between the many small Berber villages in the surrounding area.
