• Fund Peace Corps Volunteer Projects

Total Project Investment: $5,000 Donate to this project!

Since 1963 over 4,000 Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) have served the Kingdom of Morocco. Today there are more than 200 PCVs serving Morocco in the areas of the environment, health, small business development, and youth development. HAF is committed to partnering with current PCVs to provide small grants to support community designed and managed projects, often those that benefit women and youth. Examples of funding requests include start-up materials for a women’s cooperatives, books for literacy classes, and trees for community orchards. These projects generally cost less than $250 each, allowing for at least twenty community-based projects to be funded with a total investment of $5,000.

 

A gift to the High Atlas Foundation represents a gift to its entire mission. We use your gift where it is needed most by combining it with other gifts to support community development projects in Morocco. HAF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

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).
