New Friendhsips for Youth-Driven Sustainable Development

The common objective that gathers the High Atlas Foundation (HAF) and Israel Is Organization is to strengthen the role of young people towards sustainable development. 

HAF Program Manager for the USAID Farmer-to-Farmer program, Errachid, met with five members of the Israel Is Organization who work to connect young Israelis with millennials around the world. The purpose of the meeting was to pave the way for several youth initiatives in Morocco . 
As result, new iinitiatives were discussed to work collectively not only to bring young change-makers together, but to engage them in collecting data from the field and contribute to building sustainable development projects. Such young people will also be able to channel their energy into current projects where local communities implement what they carry in their hearts.

This partnership will further provide a platform for young professionals in the MENA region to bond and interact based on shared experiences and challenges, as well as to create a business and social collaboration to enhance the relations between countries.

In order to advance the participatory approach, sustainable development and friendship, both HAF and Israel Is planted a fig tree near the local fruit tree nursery that is built on land lent in-kind by the Moroccan Jewish community, which provides 45,000 fruit trees for hundreds of farming families and scores of schools in Morocco.
