Welcome

MARHABA.
Hello and welcome from Peace Corps Morocco's Gender and Development (GAD) Committee.



We are a passionate, committed group of individuals who strive to bring issues surrounding gender to the forefront of our service. While our committee serves many purposes - from toolkit creation, information dissemination, and offering support to other volunteers - our main objective is to spread awareness and understanding of gender norms and values we encounter every day, and how this awareness can translate to the work we do.

Oftentimes we use the metaphor of viewing our service and lives through a "gender lens", that is, a hypothetical pair of glasses one wears to observe the world around them in a different context, one full of gendered nuances, behaviors, and distributions of power.
