Couscous du vendredi chez Solidarité Féminine

*for English, scroll down*

Sur la terrasse de l’Association Solidarité Féminine, “pour aider les mères seules démunies et chargées d’enfants en bas âge à se prendre en charge par leur propre effort.”

Les femmes aidées par l’association sont aussi formées pour travailler dans plusieurs entreprises. L’association comprend un hammam, une esthéticienne, et un restaurant où on sert tous les vendredis le couscous. Ça vaut largement la peine pour 35 dirhams, ce qui va directement à un organisme qui aide les mères seules tout en encourageant l’autonomie chez une partie vulnérable de la société.

On the terrace of the organization, “Association Solidarité Féminine,” which aims to help poor, single mothers with small children manage their lives and empower themselves. (translated, from this article).

The women served by the association also receive job training to work in several branch businesses. The Association runs a hammam, a salon, and a restaurant where they serve couscous every friday. It’s 35 dirhams well spent on an association that addresses the needs of single mothers and works to empower a very vulnerable section of society.

    I was hoping that you also have a service to provide day visits/tour guides in Casablanca? I s that possible to arrange to have a woman accompany me to the sites and visit some of the atelier/workshops of Moroccan artisans (jewelry, clothes, etc)? Thank you.

      Hi Mari, I´m afraid that I don´t personally offer such a service. Casamemoire does architecture tours, but as far as artisans are concerned, I´m not aware of any organization that does such a thing, at least not in Casa. I will look into it and get back to you in a week or so.
