The first step to a healthy family.

Amezray women gather for their first health day.
Amezray women gather for their first health day.

The Community Health program launched with a series of four Health Awareness Days. The awareness days were attended by over 50 women and their children from each of the four villages of Amezray, Aguddim, Taghia, and Tighanimin. Included in the women were the region's traditional birth attendants (midwives), that will be learning more and more advanced skills through our continued workshops. They shared their concerns and ideas regarding their families' health as well as learned basic sanitation and hygiene practices for their homes and daily life. Atlas Cultural Foundation board member Leigh Taggert and Iqra Fund founder Genevieve Chabot led the days and taught general hygiene and sanitation practices. The day also included small group discussions in which the women had the opportunity to share their needs and desires for future awareness days. The small groups were led by a group of sixth grade girls from the Elementary School Tutoring Program. A big thank you to our local Moroccan partner Association Amezray SMNID for organizing these events.

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.
