Harry and Meghan visit Intrepid Group-backed charity in Morocco

The Education for All charity in Morocco supported by the charitable arm of Intrepid Group was visited yesterday by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Harry and his pregnant wife Meghan are on a three-day trip to the country to support girls’ education and strengthening ties with the UK.

The royal couple visited classrooms in the mountain village of Asni.

The Intrepid Foundation encourages fund raising for Education for All to help give girls from remote villages in the High Atlas region of Morocco access to education.

The charity, funded in 2007, currently supports 192 girls across five safe boarding houses, each of which is managed by local house mothers. It now has 50 girls enrolled in university.

Kensington Palace said Education for All “has given girls from the poorest villages and most remote areas of Morocco the chance to reach their potential and contribute to Morocco’s continued development”.
