The ShePower Programme is a collaboration between the Youth Center for Research and Development (YCRD) of Morocco in partnership with the Centre for International Learning and Leadership (CILL) in the UK, funded by the British Council in the framework of its Leadership for Gender Equality programme for the duration of April to June 2021.

ShePower will be a series of workshops to be held online from April 2021 to June 2021. Twenty five Moroccan female participants will discover aspects of media including, but not limited to, news styles, reporting, interviewing, videography and photography. The participants will learn how to use their voices and express themselves on the program media platform, highlight causes from their communities, and use their voices to bring change.

Participants on the programme have been selected on the basis of their exceptional motivation, leadership potential, and commitment to making a difference in their communities. They are young extraordinary women with great potential for future leadership roles in society.

The partnership will provide training and follow-up from experts in the UK, advanced media skills, access to a digital platform with all inputs during the training, an internet accessibility fund for 3 months, and a final achievement certificate.

Trevor Keough, Director of CILL and Momentum World said ” we are really looking forward to being part of the delivery team on this project which is our first time working with a partner in Morocco. We hope that it is the first of many such opportunities and we are grateful to the British Council for funding innovative ideas such as this”.
