We believe the world would be a better place if everyone made an effort to be better neighbors.
The goal of Project Soar is simple: to empower Moroccan girls through art, sports and health education. We help keep girls in school, breaking the cycle of girl marriages and girl motherhood.
In 2013, Maryam and Chris founded Project Soar, a non-profit organization that seeks to uplift underserved girls in the area where Peacock Pavilions is located.
The organization hosts activities weekly for over 50 girls between the ages of 8-15. Girls must stay in school to participate in Project Soar, helping prevent them from becoming girl brides, a practice that is still prevalent in the area.
Project Soar now has a a headquarters in the village where Peacock Pavilions is located. The organization has received mention in multiple media outlets, including on CNN International in the Fall of 2015. Plans are currently underway to expand Project Soar so that it can reach more girls.
Peacock Pavilions prides itself in being Marrakesh's Do Good Hotel, and provides financial support to Project Soar, as well as facilities for many Project Soar activities. Many of the hotel's guests and retreat leaders have participated in Project Soar activities. Many have also provided generous financial support to the cause.
Project Soar is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
