Mike McHugo, a long standing member of the British Moroccan Society and active charity fund raiser in Morocco, is promoting 'The Marrakech Atlas Etape', in favour of Education for All, a charity that promotes secondary/college education for girls from rural areas.
This one day cycling event will take place 28 April 2013. There are two routes from Marrakech: an easier one (60km ride to Ourika and back) one and a very difficult one (140km to Oukaimdene and back). More information at http://www.marrakech-atlas-etape.com
Follow the link from the website to read about the work carried out by Education for All. Those with long memories might remember the boarding house was the subject of a 2004 TV programme 'Road to Marrakech' when the BBC Ground Force team created a kitchen garden for the girls.
