2M interview colonie de Tafoghalt

This morning, the Association du Docteur Fatiha met 2M, the Moroccan national channel, while leading an awareness-raising campaign with children and young people.

You will soon see this report on TV, focusing on our activities with the summer camp in Tafoghalt. As soon as we know more about the exact broadcast time and day, we will tell you. [Sunday, 18th, evening news report]. So keep connected on our facebook page.

Two sensitization days were planned dedicated to the global waste issue.

This morning, Sabah Ouali presented our actions before the children to put on ADF’s tee-shirts and gloves to clean up the next wood. All in all, 1 200 liters of waste were collected !

91 children aged from 8 to 15

took part in our activities on the 16th and the 17th  

The families of Tafoghalt and Berkane go quite often to Tafoghalt forests to have lunch. As a consequence, there were quite a lot to do! What was most picked up? Tuna tins, cans, milk bags, plastic bottles, even dippers, shoes, blankets and plastic bags of course !

ADF has got plenty of ideas to reuse garbage ; first plastic bags which can be turned into fashion accessories (, but we also transform plastic bottles into pencils holders, or juce cartons into wallets.

Tomorrow, the young Oujdis will make their own. A great opportunity for them to have a new look at “waste”.

ADF funds the craftswomen children scolarship

ADF is proud to annonce you the creation of a fund to cover the scolarship fees of our crafstwomen’s children.

Thanks to the great help from a Moroccan living abroad, who does not wish to be quoted, the association will fund the fees related to the scolarship of 10 children. In 2013, 3 boys and 7 girls will also benefit from this fund. The administrative costs linked to their scolarship, the supplies and required outfits will be paid by ADF. Visual examination and glasses fees were also taken into account for Amina Tarifit, 9 years-old to attend her lessons in the best conditions.

Dons de fournitures

This action falls within ADF wish to support education. Recently, thanks to the gifts made by printers and supplies sellers, ADF could deal notebooks and pens to the pupils of Chouihiya school that needed most.

Thank you all ! Without you, none of those actions would be possible.

From March 22 to 25, let’s keep the water clean

Waste composed  from 60 to 90% of plastic which pollute waters, kill marine wildlife (fauna and flora) and the chemical components end up in human organism since we are at the top of the food chain.

To avoid this, we need to use more and more the 4Rs rule: reduce, reuse, recycle and recover. Meanwhile, there’s a lot of waste in our waters that we need to clean

Pour éviter cela, il faut utiliser la règle des 4R: refusons, réduisons, réutilisons et recyclons. En attendant, il y a beaucoup de déchets dans nos eaux qu’il faut nettoyer.
