Summer updates and school curriculum

Although it has been a hot summer, that has not prevented communities from maintaining the health and ensuring the growth of their trees! Here are some project updates from the various school benefitting from Sami’s Project.

The headmaster of Talat n Yaacoub school ensures the well-being of the trees. The school has a generous amount of property upon which they plan to create an environmental club that includes all types of trees that suit the area. This school is provided with enough water from its well, conveniently located on the school property. Currently, the school is seeking help from their commune to install a drip system to water their trees.

The Loualja school has greatly benefited from the tree-planting activity and initiatives of the High Atlas Foundation. In addition, the school has developed and formalized a partnership with the local youth association. This association consists of school alumni who are committed to implementing further project activities and taking care of the facility.

At the Imgdal School, the trees are flourishing as the students water them during vacation. The teachers encourage the students to take care of trees at the Lberj School. Some of the kids said that ‘’owning and watering a tree is a privilege for me from this school’. At this school, all the trees in this school are irrigated via connection to the drip system, which uses tap water.

The teachers and the students chose, as a result of a consensus vote, a student from grade 6 to water the trees during vacation. He was chosen because he had a pervious experience: his own family has a similar drip-system of irrigation in their yard. In addition, many other students assisted him in the process of maintaining these trees.

In July, HAF staff and local teachers discussed some of the major challenges teachers face in rural areas. Particular grievances were related to curriculum. Currently, High Atlas Foundation is working on creating a standard curriculum, to benefit these rural areas.
