Regions

Amis Des Ecoles focuses on creating educational opportunities for children in rural regions of Morocco, where poverty and lack of infrastructure are common. Statistics show a much higher rate of dropouts in rural schools, especially for girls. We currently work in five regions, four desert, and one mountainous, each of which has unique challenges and opportunities.

Tata-Laayoune

60% of our work is done in the Tata provence, located in the south and covering the regions of Souss-Massa, Guelmim-Oued Noum, Daraa-Tafilalt, and Laayoun-Saguia El Hamra. The province alone has approximately 130,000 inhabitants sparsely distributed over a plain of the Sahara Desert, near the Algerian border. In Tata there is no industry and the population lives predominantly on small trade and tourism. The landscape is mostly barren and the climate is extremely dry.

The Marrakech, Tensift and Al Haouz Mountinous Region

The valleys of Oussertek, Sidi Farrs and Imnan are located in the Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz region. The villages in this region are populated by about 5,000 people. The villagers face challenges stemming from their mountainous environment and extreme temperature shifts, which keeps them isolated from nearby urban areas. This is where our Women’s Training Center is located. Here we empower local women by teaching them economically viable skills.
