“Since 2003, creating synergistic partnerships that drive sustainable, community-initiated development in Morocco”
Invest in Rural Education
Many rural schools are not equipped with toilets or basic infrastructure. This situation reduces morale. Building gender-segregated bathrooms has a profound effect on girl’s attendance.
New Chair of HAF’s Board
Mr. Thomas Anderson, chair of the board, has been a longtime supporter of the HAF and its participatory development mission since its very beginning, serving as a Co-Founder of the Foundation back in 2000.
New Projects in Boujdour
In the southern province of Boujdour, HAF created a local association and completed a participatory training and assessment. Stay tuned for more information.
HAF will plant its 1 millionth tree in January. Our fruit tree agriculture initiative improves the livelihood of rural Moroccans, while maintaining an eco-friendly approach to economic growth.
Check out our newest project! Biomass briquette systems which repurpose agricultural waste for clean energy.
These projects tell the story of how Morocco and other nations of regions and the world can cost effectively overcome the serious challenges that we face; pervasive rural poverty, gender and youth marginalization, and land degradation.
HAF intern Zaynab spent time at the training center in Mohammedia. She reports “After a month of interning with HAF, I am convinced not only of the fact that participatory development works, but that it promotes true sustainable development.”
