• Fund Peace Corps Volunteer Projects

Total Project Investment: $5,000 Donate to this project!

Since 1963 over 4,000 Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) have served the Kingdom of Morocco. Today there are more than 200 PCVs serving Morocco in the areas of the environment, health, small business development, and youth development. HAF is committed to partnering with current PCVs to provide small grants to support community designed and managed projects, often those that benefit women and youth. Examples of funding requests include start-up materials for a women’s cooperatives, books for literacy classes, and trees for community orchards. These projects generally cost less than $250 each, allowing for at least twenty community-based projects to be funded with a total investment of $5,000.

 

A gift to the High Atlas Foundation represents a gift to its entire mission. We use your gift where it is needed most by combining it with other gifts to support community development projects in Morocco. HAF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
