Profit from the sale of the calendar goes to Education for All, a charity that helps to fund boarding places for impoverished girls in rural Morocco, enabling them to attend secondary school.
The issue of gender inequalities is taught in the Core theme of the IB geography syllabus and the importance of educating women is something which is brought home to our Lower Sixth IB Geographers on the annual visit to the High Atlas mountains in Morocco each Easter holiday. Among the Berber villages of the High Atlas mountains students meet women their own age who craved the chance to be educated beyond primary school and also spend some time interacting with the girls at the boarding house in Asni who are fortunate enough to directly benefit from the EfA charity.
The 2017 calendar sale raised £2000 for this charity. In April of this year a further £1000 from the calendar sale was donated directly to the local Imlil Association and our students helped to construct a wall at the local primary school (one of the Association’s current projects to enhance the community).
Please note: Images submitted may be published in the Geography Calendar with your name. Winning images may also be published in other Sevenoaks School media. Copyright of the calendar remains with Sevenoaks School. Proceeds from sales of the calendar will be donated to Education for All
