HIGH ATLAS FOUNDATION SELECTS THIRD MONDAY OF JANUARY AS ANNUAL DAY OF TREE PLANTING
 

MARRAKECH- In the United States, the third Monday of January commemorates the life and pursuit of justice led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Dr. King recognized the power of service. He famously said, “Everyone can be great because everybody can serve.” Observing the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday through service is a way to begin each year with a commitment to making your community a better place.  In honor of those ideals, the High Atlas Foundation (HAF) announces its commitment to planting trees annually across its project sites in the Kingdom of Morocco, and with our partners, globally.
 
On January 16th, HAF is planting trees with members of local communities and students of all ages in 16 provinces of Morocco at approximately 50 locations.  We hope you will join us for this moment of unity with one another, with our natural environment, and with hope for a peaceful and prosperous future.


 
On this day of service, HAF and our partner, the Rabat branch of the Science Teachers Association, are honored to plant trees at the Larbi Doghmi High School in 
Temara-Skhirat, alongside its students.  Our special guests will include United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco, Dwight L. Bush, Sr., and the Adviser to the King of Morocco, Mr. André Azoulay. 
 
HAF co-founder and President, Dr. Yossef Ben-Meir highlighted the importance of the annual event, “Growing trees are an integral part of achieving the people’s development.  Who is taking this action with us?  Interfaith groups, cooperatives of women, partners in government at all levels and civil agencies, the living honoring the departed, students of all grades, and we hope that you will if you wish.”
 
The planting of trees will take place at 12:00 p.m., on January 16th, 2017.
