    This Thursday, June 8, the High Atlas Foundation will jointly host a breakfast at the Synagogue Slat Lazama with the Association Mimouna and the Jewish Community of Marrakesh-Sofi. The event will include a traditional Iftor breakfast to break the Ramadan fast and will be followed by community mapping sessions with local residents from the Mellah.

This event marks the beginning of a series of events with the Mellah community, aiming at fostering participatory engagement between the Mellah community and the High Atlas Foundation. Each session will work with a unique group of local people, mapping the Mellah communities’ needs and attempting to find solutions that sustainably mitigate the community’s concerns from a ground-up approach.

The High Atlas Foundation looks forward to working closely with community members of the Mellah, attempting to more deeply understand the needs of the community from the point of view of the community-members. Through doing so, the High Atlas Foundationhopes to more successfully facilitate discussions about potential solutions and implement them.

The High Atlas Foundation firmly believes in a commitment to grassroots problem solving: allowing communities to decide how to approach problems and assisting the implementation of these new projects. In this way, the High Atlas Foundation hopes to engage the community-members of the Mellah throughout this event and empower these associations, in the short and long-term.
The High Atlas Foundation is grateful to the Association Mimouna, the Jewish Community of Marrakesh, and the local government for partnering with us in order to host this event and facilitate these discussions.
