Grateful for HAF’s Volunteers

The High Atlas Foundation was born from volunteerism. HAF is the product of Peace Corps Volunteers from the United States serving in Morocco, and Moroccans serving in their country. We all came together to create an organization that is entirely focused on listening to, and supporting, the dreams of the people.  


Then, the summer of 2018 came. We are now experiencing a new and uplifting level of volunteerism. Our more than 20-person staff doubled with the addition of volunteers from the U.S., from within Morocco and MENA, and from European countries.  Our larger HAF team, dedicated to the cause of people’s participation, has enabled the organization to reach further, do more, and make a greater difference.


Our articles that advocate women’s opportunities, youth’s fulfillment, and marginalized communities’ growth have become more numerous and widespread in publication around the world. Proposals and assessments to bring sustainable benefits to larger numbers of people and places were developed and are filled with promise. Perhaps most importantly, the enriching and unforgettable interactions between our volunteer visitors for the summer and Moroccan urban and rural people have continued and expanded.

We dedicate this Newsletter to our volunteers and to the hundreds of volunteers who have given so much during the lifetime of the High Atlas Foundation, without whom so many people’s best dreams might have remained just in their hearts and minds, but instead have found tangible realization. All of these articles in this Newsletter are written by those who came to Morocco to give themselves, and we are honestly and eternally grateful.

We send a special thanks to the University of Virginia’s International Program and to the Farmer-to-Farmer Program of Land O’Lakes and USAID.Happy summer everybody.
