Olive tree planting with 200 Moroccan families

March 2012 update

This project is moving right along, slowly but steadily.

Community planning meetings have determined the projects that the residents feel are necessary. Planting 10,000 olive trees in this region will transform the lives of the remaining elderly, women and children left behind when their husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers left to seek work in larger cities or abroad.

This project will enable these remaining residents to send their children to school for longer and become adults who will stay and learn the skills to farm in their community rather than have to leave and never return.

The community members are ready to move forward with this project, and we are awaiting more funding to enable its implementation. As always, we appreciate your support.
