HAF completed its 1 Million Tree Goal in January 2014, and has since launched a 1 Billion Tree Campaign. Join us in breaking the cycle of subsistence agriculture.


HAF works in rural areas of Morocco to target the most marginalized communities.


With support from HAF’s expert field staff, communities are given the tools and knowledge to take on their most difficult development challenges.


Infrastructural development is key to bringing communities clean drinking water, improving learning conditions in schools, and increasing agricultural efficiency and production.


HAF’s grassroots approach engages community members throughout the entire development cycle, from planning to implementation and evaluation.


HAF’s experiential training approach increases the impact of development and enables projects to achieve scale.


Income-generating projects empower vulnerable community members and help to break the cycle of poverty.


HAF programs engage marginalized youth and provide essential educational opportunities.


HAF created a social enterprise, High Atlas Agriculture and Artisanal (HA3), which takes an environmentally friendly approach to food security and prosperity.


HAF is dedicated to benefiting disadvantaged communities and groups, especially women and youth, throughout Morocco.
