Mission and Overview

Version Français

 

The High Atlas Foundation is dedicated to catalyze economic growth and endorse grassroots development in disadvantaged communities throughout Morocco. 

 

HAF works to establish livelihood advancement projects. All of which are identified and managed by local communities, in partnership with the public, private and civil sectors. Since 2000, HAF involvement creates synergistic partnerships that drive sustainable, community-initiated development in Morocco. This includes concepts such as improving economic viability to villages, which then fund women's empowerment workshops, among many other development programs.

 

HAF uses a participatory approach that is driven by community beneficiaries in every step of the development process. From prioritizing goals and project implementation to monitoring and evaluation. The key to this approach is the facilitation of community planning meetings, where beneficiaries jointly determine the projects they’ve chosen to undertake and create action plans. This participatory method is integrated to Morocco’s national vision for sustainable human development. HAF recognizes the need for top-down support of grassroots initiatives. Overall, aiming to provide guidance and training by local residents, to initiate life-transforming activities which will carry on into the future.

 

Founded in 2000: Building upon the relationships and knowledge gained during their years of service in Morocco, former Peace Corps volunteers founded HAF to use their combined experience to further benefit the Moroccan people.

Today: HAF is a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization and a Moroccan non-profit association, led by its Board of Directors and Operations Team of Moroccans and Americans. HAF has a highly distinguished Advisory Board and since 2011 has Special Consultative States with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

 

HAF actively recruits talent and expertise within Morocco and is supported by Moroccan and international volunteers. The dynamic created by this intercultural team gives HAF a unique perspective and capacity to advance people’s development. Meet our team and our board.
