Abstract

Lack of education in rural communities is one of the most prominent problems facing the developing world. In Islamic countries such as Morocco, girls are pulled out of the school because of concerns by parents due to a lack of privacy when it comes to going to the bathroom. This lack of education for girls is a serious concern for the community, as it will cause it to lag behind the rest of the world and perpetuate the cycle of poverty. Through our project, we developed a plan for bringing running water to the school and to build an enclosed bathroom facility. These recommendations will be proposed to funding institutions for the purpose of obtaining financial resources to conduct the project and make it a realization.
