ALLISSA TOURS MOROCCO TO TRAIN MUSLIM GIRL MOJOS

Project Type

International MOJO Workshop

Client

GlobalGirl Media

Project Duration

2 weeks

GlobalGirl Media invited me to launch a mobile journalism academy for Muslim women and girls living in Morocco, in the wake of the Arab Spring revolts. I criss-crossed the country to train nearly 40 women in the cities of Rabat, Safi, Tetuoan, Marrakesh and Mohammedia. In traditional Muslim cultures, women often are not allowed to convene in public places. So my lady MOJOs, armed with iPods and microphones, were quite a sight to see!
