Grow Trees in Morocco, Benefit the World

 

Dear Friends,


The world depends on it. That is, on Morocco achieving its sustainable development vision, driven by participatory democratic action.  It’s true.

A shining example for the African Continent and the Middle East of community-driven change, interfaith pursuit, and south-south unity, depends upon Morocco’s success.

And Morocco’s best future, depends on many things, but especially upon rural communities of its countryside - where most of the nation’s poverty exists - achieving organic cultivation of trees and plants, organic certification and processing, water and cooperative efficiency, and global sales.

The implementation of all the essential projects of the people, depend on reinvestment from these organic sales into building their schools, building the power of women and youth, building clean drinking water systems, building the dreams communities dream together.

 

 

All this can start with planting a tree,a walnut tree, an almond tree, a cherry, lemon, date, and fig tree, an Argan tree, a carob tree, olive, and pomegranate - all these organic varieties and the dozens of medicinal plants that grow naturally but need harnessing.  Together, all of us can plant.  Participation as a way of life might have begun with planting seeds - it is for everyone.  


The success of Morocco’s example and model is essential for itself and the world, and all the partnerships and activities that surround and flow from tree planting is an indelible part of the Kingdom’s most promising future.

So in this special months that coincides holidays of faiths of our world, we ask, please 

help the High Atlas Foundation 

plant and plant more.  This is the season, this is the moment when the ground rejoices when planted upon.  We have from this moment until mid-March, when the season ends.  Help us help Morocco, for its people and the world.

This January 16th at noon, and on all third Mondays of January to come (Insh’allah), on the day we celebrate the pursuit of world justice inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the High Atlas Foundation and friends and partners will plant a tree at all project sites in Morocco.  Help us to grow anew at hundreds of locations, where all at once we place trees with their long lives to come, into the ground.

We wish you, your families, all you encounter, health and happiness,

The High Atlas Foundation Team

HafFdtn The regional integration approach promotes trade within a restricted geographic area.
HafFdtn HAF will do its very best to give back to rural Moroccan communities by encouraging their sustainable development. Best, Kerstin
HafFdtn Witnessing poverty, generosity and peacefulness in mind, keeps me thinking, how much I take for granted and don’t appreciate as I should.
HafFdtn The revenue from nuts will help farmers to overcome subsistence agriculture and poverty and will promote sustainable development projects.
HafFdtn Almond trees can live longer than a century, and walnut more than four centuries.
HafFdtn Once mature, every walnut tree will increase the farmer’s yearly income by $300 and every almond tree by $15.
HafFdtn Unemployment is highest among young in Morocco, with 33% of 15-to-24-year-olds and 26% of 25-to-34-year-olds unemployed (MPI Report, 2008).
