Rhamna green schools

On the 16th of January 2017, MLK Day was the real event: HAF and its community, public, civil, and private partners had the goal of planting thousands of trees all around Morocco.

 
With schoolchildren and teachers in the Rhamna province of the Marrakech region, we planted more than 400 trees, including almond, pomegranate, and fig.  We started at a school with a green flag, an important symbol of the school's dedication to the environment.  I really was surprised that I found all the teachers and students waiting for us - it was a priceless moment in my life.
 
We presented HAF's activities.  We saw meaning in the students' smiles. 
 
The first tree we planted was almond, and there were many hands to help in this act as we together created a green space.  We did the same at each of eight schools on that day, with the same incredible receptions. 
 
We hope for many future projects soon.
 
Thanks to you, Dr. Yossef and all of HAF.

HafFdtn We are just happy to share and plant some trees – particularly walnut that can live 500 years. https://t.co/zq291Akh5I

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).
