Women’s Cooperative In The Tifnoute Valley

Fall 2010 update.

The High Atlas Foundation is happy to let you know that we met with key officials in the Tifnoute Valley and conducted important planning and authorization steps for the construction of the women’s Cooperative. In addition, the Rural Commune of Toubkal provided land in-kind for the women’s Cooperative and its related activities.

The Foundation also facilitated the women’s community meetings, and through their analysis of their own needs and opportunities, the women decided to have the following activities in their cooperative:

  • Fruit tree agriculture and value-added production (making of dry fruit)
  • Weaving and knitting projects – dresses, carpets, and knitting projects
  • Planning and management training and literacy courses

We thank you all for your support and wish you a happy holiday season and a joyous new year. We look forward to posting more project reports and photos in 2011.
