Mission and Overview

The mission of the High Atlas Foundation is to catalyze grassroots development in disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in Morocco. 

 

HAF works to establish sustainable development projects identified and managed by local communities in partnership with the public, private and civil sectors.

HAF uses a participatory approach that is driven by community beneficiaries in every step of the development process, from prioritizing goals to project implementation and evaluation. Key to this approach is the facilitation of community planning meetings, where beneficiaries jointly together determine the projects they’ve chosen to undertake and create action plans.

This participatory method is integral to Morocco’s national vision for sustainable human development.

HAF recognizes the need for top-down support of grassroots initiatives. to this end, HAF works to support understanding and use of the participatory approach in all levels of government and society.

HAF has been actively implementing projects in Morocco since 2003, building on the Peace Corps experience of its founders. HAF is both a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization and a Moroccan non-profit association. Since 2011 it has held special Consultative Status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council. 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 perspctive and capacity to advance people’s development. Meet our team and our board.
