Achieve the dream of planting trees in schools

Amina El Hajjami Project manager with High Atlas Foundation

It's amazing when you have a dream in life and you see this dream becoming reality. This happened to me when I was a student in primary schools.

I walked 6 km from my home to my school and on the road; all the farms have trees, mostly olive trees. My school just had one big eucalyptus tree. I asked myself, who planted this beautiful trees that give shade to the students and why didn't we have more trees in my school and if we want trees, who can help schools planting them. A lot of question in my memory and I have recalled them when I started working with High Atlas Foundation.

I work with High Atlas Foundation for 2.5 years and I participated in Sami's project before for 4 years. Every January in a year I distribute organic trees for schools and students in many provinces al Haouz, Essaouira, Azilal, Chichaua, El Jadida and I participate to planting trees in each school, also I coordinate other Provinces.

I feel success when I return to visit some the schools and I see the trees that we planted in years ago with the schools grow and that encourage us to plant more and more in these schools.

I enjoy seeing the people take care of the trees and the schools having the environmental goal in the plan. I'm happy a grateful when I hear from the schools that the trees give fruits and they will use this fruits for the student. Some schools even have the idea to use the fruits of income-generating projects for schools to building bathroom, classes, drinking water and all needed of schools and this strategic will help schools self-independence in the future.
