About Us

Madrasa Dunya is a mix of expat and local educators that come from all kinds of backgrounds, together with the local people we are crafting this hub for: World schooling families, the local people and home schooling residence from the Marrakech region.
Our mission is to be an educational hub, and local projects community, that feels like home and everyone attending
feels as a part of us. A place where we learn from each other
through cultural and wisdom exchange. With universal values
and real life skills to prepare the youth for life (Hayat) in this World (Dunya). And let them blend knowledge and experience from all that  this Dunya and this beautiful country have to offer. Let’s connect to the authentic history of Moroccan culture, through the nature, the stories and the people!

Meet our Family

Family
Mechrout/Pedersen

We are Morooccan/multicultural family of 7 + our 3 neighbour boys who became a part of us. 2 years ago, we decided to take the crazy step of leaving everything behind in our home town Rotterdam in Holland and make the big move to Morocco! We left without a plan, just seeing where the rivers of life would take us. This of course was a whole adventure with a lot of ups and downs, that finally brought us to this paradise with amazing people, the first place ever that really feels like home. Having the surprise of our little miracle, baby Jelisah and getting the amazing opportunity of successfully opening the first world school of Morocco, that is already running for the 3rd season. We can say:  Life brings amazing things if you just take the ride!

Meet the Madrasa Dunya Family!

Hi I'm Jenna, founder and organiser of Madrasa Dunya.
Together with my husband, Boubker who is my left hand in everything I do.
And the most Amazing loving and supporting team,  we are managing our World School: Madrasa Dunya, 
I'm a home schooling mother of 4 amazing kids, that always had a passion for organizing, being creative, decorating, and handcrafts. I worked for more than 10 years as a manager in hotels and restaurants and I did a lot of event and party planning. While parenting my children I discovered a new passion in alternative education. On my journey of getting free from the regular schooling system,
I experienced working at:

VIVERE DEMOCRATISCH ONDERWIJS
A democratic school in Holland.
YOU TALENT
An after school class for children that live in suburban areas in Rotterdam.
A space for kids to discover their talents and give them confidence in themselves through project based learning.

LA BELLE VERTE
Home schoolers community Marrakech.
Because of Corona unfortunately my dream job at the Democratic school ended.
But this made way for us being able to take the big step of moving to Morocco.
All the ups and downs we came across during our educational journey experiencing all kinds of different functions in alternative education, brought me now to this little paradise with a backpack full of experiences of what works and what doesn't.
Feeling totally ready to truly educate!
