The Moroccan Government and the Millenium Challenge Corporation are inviting tenders from suitably qualified people who can facilitate and enhance women's integration into the craft sector in the Fez Medina and help get their products to market.

The project recognises that the inequalities between men and women are significant barriers to economic growth and poverty reduction. The aim is to improve the quality of products, develop new products based on the skills of female artisans and teach them new skills to enhance not only the products but the lives of the women involved.

Applications close on October 15.
