Review for High Atlas Foundation, New York, NY, USA
As part of our interns trip of the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit mbH) to Morocco we have chosen HAF as one of our project visits. Their idea to apply the participatory method in all its projects has caught out attention. After we contacted Errachid to ask if a project visit was possible, we were warmly welcomed by the HAF team in November 2018.
At the beginning the founder of the NGO, Dr. Ben-Meir Yossef, gave us a first overview about the mission and vision of HAF, their partnerships and their current projects. Afterwards we got the unique opportunity to visit and get to know two projects on site. First we went to the House of Life in Akrich, Al Haouz - an inter-religious partnership that combines a Jewish burial site with a tree nursery for neighboring Muslim communities. Second, we visited a women's cooperative with an integrated kindergarten where women weave carpets. All in all, HAF and its team gave us an extraordinary opportunity to experience their successful project work in the communities.
HAF is a NGO truly dedicated to promoting prosperity and supporting the sustainable development of Moroccan communities - successfully in many areas from multiculturalism to youth and women's empowerment. We highly recommend a visit or an engagement with HAF.
