Summary

This project provides education and resources that achieve long-term health for four remote communities of Morocco.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Zawiya Ahansal currently has one government operated health clinic in the village of Aguddim. The clinic was established in 2009 and is staffed by two midwives and one nurse. Despite the existence of the clinic and new and improved access to health care, many women chose not to use the clinic for health problems and care during pregnancy and childbirth. For this reason, one our primary goals is to facilitate a mutual relationship with the community and the clinic, and hopefully increase clinic u

How will this project solve this problem?

Specifically, the goals of the Community Health Program are to: 1. Increase utilization of the Zawiya Ahansal clinic and Azilal hospital by local villagers. 2. Provide education on safe water, sanitation and hygiene. 3. Provide education on improving nutrition, especially for women and children, and proper food storage strategies. 4. Provide general health education for the community. 5. Identify key community health promoters and facilitate leadership to ensure program sustainability.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the guidance of local leadership and the Moroccan Association Amezray SMNID, we anticipate the Community Health Program to provide long-term sustainability and improvements in the health of these rural Moroccan communities. With good health, people can focus on important issues like higher education, income generation, and community well being. We are excited to develop strategies for these long-term goals.

This project is being run by a socially-oriented for-profit company.

From time to time, GlobalGiving posts projects run by socially-oriented for-profit companies, whose work includes charitable activities in the public interest. ALL projects on GlobalGiving have a bonafide charitable purpose, and are required to submit extensive documentation and complete a thorough application process. GlobalGiving reviews all applications, and vets the projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and satisfy IRS guidelines for international grantmaking as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Provided projects meet all these criteria, the IRS allows public foundations such as GlobalGiving to make grants in support of this work.

Projects in this category are required to undergo an expenditure review - meaning they must detail the charitable activities for which they are requesting funding, and provide an actual review of how the funds were spent.
