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.

My Experience with the Natural Environment

 

By Amina El Hajjami                                                                                       High Atlas Foundation       

Project Manager

I was born in a modest agricultural village in High Atlas Mountains on the outskirts of Marrakech. I grew up in a small family, and we depended on agriculture for ensuring food and financial security, and also to finance my siblings’ education.

My father spent all of his life working in agriculture. He still spends all of his days in the field. When I was a child, I used to accompany him only to play, and have fun, but I was very curious about his job, knowing with time that it wasn’t easy work to do, and it needed specialized technical skills.

HAF Team Impressions of COP22

 

Montasser Namouji

HAF Intern-Journalist

 

Inside the High Atlas Foundation’s operating office, I personally feel the family and responsibility spirit, which are motivating everyone to do their own best and seriously consider every single task as a mission.

  Fatima Zahra Laaribi, the office manager said that being a female on the team is a point of strength.  Regarding the Foundation’s policy and encouragement in recruiting females and their employment, and basing on her experience since 2012, she states that the Foundation is taking serious steps to empower women among the Moroccan community.  Fatima Zahra also said that COP22 was a mighty experience - it was a chance for her to contact different people and to have new experiences.

  Marwa, a Women’s Empowerment Intern, said that COP22 was a great opportunity to learn from initiatives and creative ideas. In addition, attending “WECAN” and hearing international stories of indigenous women fighting climate change made her feel the importance of fighting as a Palestinian woman to save the planet.

  Amina thinks that, organizing the COP22 in Morocco for this year is a great honor both for Morocco and Moroccans.  Also, the participation of countries from all over the world shows how they care about the environment and its sustainability.  During COP22, there was effective participation of children, women and men, and a lot of workshops about environmental projects which also show that awareness and responsibility towards environment have increased. Moreover, COP22 was an opportunity for HAF to talk about its projects and activities in preserving the environment. HAF was honored to know other associations from all over the world
