This year's project was achieved with the collaboration of 3 NGOs, Mobilisation Action Partage, Interface Aix Province, and Teach4Morocco. The project was a pre-elementary school in the village of Megdaz in the Tassaout Valley. About 24 volunteers from the three NGOs attended, from the 1st to the 10th of August 2014, the final days of the work and the opening of the school. More details and media content will be posted later on.
Along with the school building, Teach4Morocco member, Dr. Laila Berrada led a medical campaign, in collaboration with The Association of Intern Doctors in Rabat, the duration of the stay in the village of Megdaz. A respectable number of people of the village benefited from free medical care and received free medication.
Teach4Morocco and Interface built a new school in the village of Ait Hamza in the Tassaout Valley. Volunteers of both NGOs went to the village for a 2 weeks period, from May 21st to June the 5th, to assist with the painting, equipping and opening the new school. The goal of this project is to allow students of the village of Ait Hamza to attend school in their own village instead of walking an hour and a half to attend it in a nearby village.
In June and July of 2012, a group of 20 Teach4Moroccco and Interface volunteers traveled to a village in the High Atlas Mountains, Ichbaken. There, Teach4Morocco reconstructed the elementary school, built a wall around the school, built clean new bathrooms, connected the school to electricity and water, repaired broken windows, insulated the roofs, made and installed new metallic doors for the school, classrooms, and bathroom, painted the doors and windows, provided heaters, installed new blackboards and curtains, leveled the floors, employed 60 locals in these building processes, and drew support from dozens of volunteers.
Here is a video of what both Teach4Morocco and Interface IEP did in Ichbaken.
