Through a parternship with Montana State University, graduate and undergraduate health and human development student wiThe Morocco: Sustainable Community Development is an International Service Learning program and field research practicum that provides students with the opportunity to participate in ongoing participatory research and field data collection, project planning, implementation, and management in the rural communities of the Zawiya Ahansal region in the Central High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This service learning program offers a five-week immersive experience for students to work directly with a faculty sponsor, the partnering organizations as well as key community stakeholders.
In May of 2012 a select group of graduate and undergraduate health and human development students from Montana State University will help with ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the program led by the partnering non-profit organizations, the Atlas Cultural Foundation and the Iqra Fund, as well as in-country associations. Currently there are no specific data on infant or maternal mortality rates in these remote communities of Zawiya Ahansal. Students will work directly with a faculty sponsor and partnering organizations to collect quantitative and qualitative data to help identify mortality rates, daily sanitation and nutrition home practices, and overall quality of community health. The data collected during the 2012 field research will directly inform the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the community health and education programs developed and funded by the partnering organizations.
Students will collect data in one or more of the following areas:
