About Program

Get involved in the heart of the Moroccan High Atlas massif in a village located in the Aït Bouguemez valley, which is nicknamed the happy valley, a rural area that spans nearly 30 kilometers and has approximately 15,000 inhabitants , spread over 27 villages .
About 260 kilometers separate the Aït Bouguemez valley from the city of Marrakech - other important towns nearby are Azilal and Beni Mellal.

Regarding the climate: the summers are dry with some rare thunderstorms, in winter the rains are more important and the period of snow generally extends from October to the end of April.

You will be there to support them in their personal development as part of educational, cultural and medical projects. You will thus help them to improve their current and future living conditions.
