To all former Peace Corps Volunteers who served in Morocco, and to all others who wish to return to this fulfilling land and continue to benefit its remarkable people:

The High Atlas Foundation (HAF) is administering the USAID Farmer-to-Farmer program during the next three years, and we sincerely hope that you will give your needed and inspiring energy again to benefit families in Morocco. Cooperatives, associations, and education centers in Morocco require business planners and website designers, experts in irrigation and agroforestry, professionals in value-added processing and certifying organic, and those with real proficiency in achieving food safety and agricultural-related goals, from nurseries to the markets of Moroccan products.

HAF’s program can support both short and long-term assignments (from two weeks to three months). It centers primarily in the regions of Marrakech, Oujda, and Beni Mellal, and is especially directed to the profound benefit of women and youth. Apply now, and join us in engaging with the Moroccan people, when time allows you.

We sincerely hope that your Moroccan journey will continue on with us, and that the deep satisfaction that comes with service for sustainability in Morocco will be yours again.

Achieving the potential of agricultural development in Morocco is a lasting action that can uplift all social dimensions—education, health, livelihoods, empowerment, and justice. Join us and give your time to assist the people of Morocco in achieving their best. Read more
