Olive tree planting with 200 Moroccan families

Jan 18, 2011

Project Update!

The High Atlas Foundation is happy to report that the planting of the olive trees in Tafraoute and Ben Guerir began, and the pressure/drip systems (fed by a solar water pump) are being installed in order to irrigate the olive trees and make agriculturally productive an area of approximately nine hectares. We thank you for supporting our Foundation in providing  sustainable income for the local population of Tafraoute and Ben Guerir, improving the quality of life for women and children, and saving the environment from erosion and desertification.
