Multicultural Exchanges and Water Sanitation

Tunnel for pipes.
Tunnel for pipes.

The Akraich community nursery—consisting of trees planted on Jewish land that will later be distributed to impoverished rural communities—simultaneously helps to undermine subsistence farming while building interfaith relationships. These exchanges are vital to the health of a community as they both promote trust between the Moroccan Jews and Muslim, as well as encourage environmental stewardship. Connected to the Akraich project, HAF recently brought clean water to the nursery’s neighboring elementary School. While HAF supplied the 8000m of piping needed to connect the school to the nearest clean water source, the actual labor to install these materials was provided by the Akraich community. The community nursery as well as this water sanitation project each capture the collaborative and generous spirit of the Moroccan people.

As the two year mark of the Akraich community nursery approaches the next stage, targeted for January 2015, involves transplanting these saplings to private orchards.  Accompanying this transfer, local farmers will continue to be trained in the technical skills needed to care for the trees.  Through educating farmers and raising awareness regarding the importance of environmental preservation, the project forges a pathway for sustainable development.  

Thanks to your continued support, HAF has been able to increase the scale of this project and reach a wider population, as well as unite diverse communities via their common interest of building a stronger Morocco.
