Hello and welcome from PC 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.
Some of our suggested GAD-created resources include:
Men as Partners Toolkit. This four-part series is aimed at establishing the need for male advocacy in the fight for gender equality.
Self Esteem Toolkit. Designed to create a safe space for girls and young women to be able to embrace their emotions and express themselves to others.
