Context Morocco is home to a rich multicultural mosaic of languages, ethnicities and religions; both geographically and culturally, the Kingdom sits at a crossroads between Africa and Europe.  

HAF endeavors to promote dialogue and unity while increasing awareness to Morocco’s rich history of tolerance and collaboration between diverse groups.

Together, HAF and local communities are taking immediate action to preserve Morocco’s multicultural past and record the memories of peaceful coexistence and intertwined history ofamong its Muslim majority together with long-established , minority Christian and Jewish communities.

These groups have lived and worked side by side for centuries - a rare narrative of peaceful coexistence in a region marked by interreligious turmoil. HAF and local partners intend to promote this history of tolerance, particularly among Moroccan youth, in the hope of reframing discussions of interfaith relationships in North Africa and the Middle East.

Muslim and Jewish collaboration towards shared human and sustainable development goals is given prominence – a happy continuation of the historical legacy of the Kingdom. Moreover, in the light of Morocco’s considerable efforts of the past decade to emphasize its Amazigh (Berber) heritage, HAF’s cultural projects seek to contribute to the celebration of the country’s fusion of Arab and Amazigh culture.
