We are truly honored that the Advisor to His Majesty the King, H.E. André Azoulay, has joined the Advisory Board of the High Atlas Foundation. His years of service to the Kingdom of Morocco marks incredible achievement for its people, the region, and beyond, especially in regards to his tireless promotion of peace and prosperity. His ongoing support for our cause of rural community development stems from his strong commitment to our basic approach: full participation of men and women in the design and management of development projects.
We also would like to announce that Mr. Azoulay and Carol Bellamy, former Director of UNICEF and the Peace Corps, will be our Guests of Honor at our annual New York City reception, being held this year on September 21st. Proceeds from this event will support our million tree initiative for rural Moroccan communities.
