The Association du Docteur Fatiha finishes the summer holidays on a high note, with 2 new awareness-raising actions this week.
One took part this very morning, in the Holidays Camp for teachers in Saidia. Sabah Ouali met about 50 people, from all ages, to present them our actions, and catch their attention on people’s look at waste.
Everybody enjoyed this morning of talkings, exchanges and games.
Tomorrow, ADF will be once again on the beaches around Moulouya’s mouth. Numerous families will be there, making the most of their last resting days.
In the next weeks, as soon as the children will be back to school, ADF will start this new year’s environmental education. Dedicated to children aged from 10 up to 12 years-old, new environmental-focused activities and games are to foresse ! New schools will join the program by the beginning of 2014.
Do not forget: ADF is looking for new volunteers who would like to spread the word about environmental issues and solutions. It can be either recurring or temporary. To join our dynamic team and attend to the September training, write to email@example.com
This morning, the Association du Docteur Fatiha met 2M, the Moroccan national channel, while leading an awareness-raising campaign with children and young people.

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 (www.ifassen.com), 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”.by
All the region’s inhabitants know the place : the Camel Cave. It’s the perfect place for a picnic, in the middle of the mountains.
In the core of the Beni Snassen uplands, the cave looks out over the valley of Oued Farrouj, tributary to Oued Zegzel. Considered as a haven of piece and of beauty for its quietness, its landscapes and its fruit trees, there nonetheless a cloud on the horizon : waste.
Now the summer has arrived, it became very difficult to find a small place spared by garbage and plastic waste.
Last 13th of June, ADF decided to act, in order to improve the situation. While explaining to people the importance of protecting nature and this very natural site, a cleaning campaign was led.
With Peace Corps and volunteers from the Youth Center el Majd, from Berkane, the cleaning was efficient. All in all, 18 100-liters bags were filled with garbage. The wonderful site is now free from them. It can now go on being an unavoidable place for leisure in the region.
Thanks to the whole team for this great job !
