Olive trees planted at a school building
Charlotte Burrows, ambassador for Global Giving UK, spent some time with HAF last week to see firsthand the huge impact of your generous donations. She visited several project sites, including a few villages in the Rahmna Province where HAF has planted and irrigated over 12,000 olive trees, thanks to your support and other partners.
Charlotte spoke with the beneficiaries of the olive tree planting and irrigating project and took away a very profound message from one of the community leaders: everything is possible.
She writes about this field visit on her blog: “One olive tree nursery I saw had been planted on the slope of a steep, rocky hill. It was a site I would never have thought feasible for planting and irrigation, and when I congratulated the community leader on this, he grinned back at me saying, ‘everything is possible’. As HAF hopes to expand its reach into every one of Morocco’s 48 provinces, this is surely a motto that guides them, too.”
We are so grateful for the support of our individual Global Giving partners, and to Global Giving UK for enabling us the chance to meet Charlotte and share the projects firsthand with her.
Your contributions not only provide rural farmers with a new and sustainable source of income, they get us one step closer to our goal of planting 1 Million Trees! We invite you to continue to partner with us, and we hope one day to see you too in the field.
