Summary

Dar Si Hmad organizes a water-school for rural children in the poor region of Ait Baamrane, Southwest Morocco. 50 children ages 7-13, on vacation, with no opportunities to continue learning, will participate in this thematic based-curriculum. We raise youth curiosity surrounding cycles of water, educate on sustainability, conservation and ecological issues. Through scientific lenses, the children build awareness and discover connections between themselves, their environment and the world beyond.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Despite noteworthy State efforts, rural children in Southwest Morocco continue to suffer from poor education, ranging from inadequate facilities, lack of water and toilets, language of instruction being Arabic in a predominantly Berber world, to teachers' absenteeism. Children of all ages and levels study in one room with one teacher, being passive listeners instead of active participants in their own learning. Curriculum is barely covered and rarely understood by the students.

How will this project solve this problem?

Dar Si Hmad has a long-standing relation with the adult community via our ongoing projects; we want to include the youth so they be active agents in development. Water-school uses water as a tool for remedial school which encourages youth to develop a curiosity for the environment. By providing the children with a pedagogy that is fun, interactive, participatory and encourages experiential learning, we stimulate intellectual growth, and help all children, especially the girls, join high-school.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children will be encouraged to influence how the environment is shaped, to become initiators of steps to secure the future in their homeland. They will discover and grasp wider dimensions of water, sustainability, and the equation of water-health. The school will nurture their curiosity, equip them with basics to succeed and continue their studies. Dar Si Hmad plans on making water-school a yearly-program, plus partnering with other associations to implement the curriculum in adjacent regions.
