All programs support the Atlas Cultural Foundation, a registered US non profit organization with the mission of collaborating with rural Moroccans in order to improve their quality of life in the fields of cultural preservation, community education, and public health.
The Atlas Cultural Foundation works in Morocco’s remote Atlas Mountains and is currently focused on development in the region of Zawiya Ahansal. Isolated within rugged mountains, Zawiya Ahansal’s 15,000 inhabitants are among the poorest people in North Africa; living with a minimum of health care and formal education. Working with a holistic, integrated approach to development, ACF understands that community needs cannot be solved in isolation because they are all interrelated. ACF facilitates successful projects by focusing on the problems of the entire region and matching experienced partners, local, international or governmental, with community needs. Start-up resources, training and knowledge are provided for long-term, sustainable impact.
