2011 development training w/ university student
In 2008, Hassan II University’s Faculty Law, Social Science and Economics partnered with HAF to create the Center for Community Consensus Building and Sustainable Development, which transfers skills in participatory community planning to students, faculty, civil society and government workers, and local people. In 2011, HAF opened its field-based participatory training Center in the town of Tahanoute of the Al Haouz province; the Center provides technical and administrative support for HAF’s project locations in the region.
The Foundation has conducted a series of experiential participatory training workshops in the Mohammedia area, successfully transferring skills with 30 university students and 15 communal assembly members. Through its field base Center, HAF is currently conducting a village-based training with 65 representatives from the 43 villages of the Rural Commune of Toubkal, Province of Taroudant.
This proposed project will train 25 university students of Hassan II University and the contents of the proposed participatory development training curriculum include:
Role of the Facilitators & Characteristics of Effective Projects

The Project Design/ Part 1 – Vision, Assets, and Strategies
