This year, a delegation of students ages 18 – 25, will depart for Morocco at the conclusion of the conference to work on numerous projects, including a three day program in the village of Tassa Ouirgane with The High Atlas Foundation.
At the conference, a special interactive session on the power of community development in Morocco will be led by HAF Board Member Nora Larhouasli Marrakchi on Saturday, May 29th from 2:00pm – 5:00pm.
