Sustainable Development Goals addressed: SDG 4 (Quality Education)
Children living in marginalized areas in Morocco don’t have access to quality education, they are often neglected by their teachers and the curriculum is not designed to tackle the specific issues they are dealing with. Therefore, medical students designed a special curriculum and teaching materials to help them improve, do better at school and catch up with their peers.

1/ Preparing the teaching materials and evaluation progress
Every week, a team of “Thinkers” get together, propose, discuss and prepare content and teaching activities (songs, theater, games, competitions…).
At the same time, they revise the students’ books, their homeworks, their test copies and evaluate the work, the pace of the classes and the needs of each student.
Every thursday from 4PM to 7PM, about 10 SCORPions head to the OUM KELTOUM complex to give classes, share their knowledge according to the program the “Thinkers” made and fill these childrens’ hearts with joy and love through fun activities and warm giving.
Plans for evaluation:
At the end of each class a mini evaluation is done for the students and then after 4 classes they take a test.
We also ask feedback from their teachers about their progress.
