A co-op enables women and girls to earn money and gain self-esteem.

Women's Cooperatives

• The Need: Women in rural Morocco have historically had only a small role in community decision-making. However, women are integral to the sustainable development of any community. In every community where HAF works, we organize meetings with women and listen to their voices. We help them better understand the development needs of their families, and create projects to meet those needs - most often in the form of women's cooperatives.

• The Solution: Cooperatives give rural women the opportunity to earn money for their families. There are many examples of successful women's cooperatives throughout Morocco that include everything from raising goats, to producing cheese, to making carpets. HAF is proud to have supported  the construction of three cooperatives in partnership with Peace Corps Volunteers: Ain Bechar (Taza), Taferdoust (Marrakech), and Ouanskra (Marrakech).

• The Impact: A single cooperative can serve women and girls from up to ten villages (approximately 250 women), and on average increase household incomes by 25 percent.

• Current Projects: HAF is building a women's cooperative in the Tifnoute Valley to serve ten villages. Through participatory planning meetings the women will determine the type(s) of income generation projects they will undertake, and HAF will work with its partners to provide the training needed to bring the cooperative from vision to reality.
