Grassroots Development

The over-arching purpose of the High Atlas Foundation is participatory grassroots development in predominantly rural disadvantaged communities in Morocco.

In 2000, former Peace Corps volunteers founded the High Atlas Foundation to benefit Morocco’s disadvantaged communities through the participatory development approach.  The HAF is a US  and Moroccan non-profit organization, and since 2011 has Special Consultative Status at the U.N. Economic and Social Council.  The HAF is dedicated to projects that local people identify and manage, including in sustainable agriculture, education, health , women and youth empowerment, and environmental resource management. The HAF’s sustainable development vision is, in a sense, Morocco’s vision for itself: it is public-private collaboration at all levels of society in order to assist villages and neighborhoods in furthering their self-reliant community development.  

HAF IS COMMITTED TO:

• Empowering communities to create development through a participatory approach.
• Including all community members in the development process – full diversity (including in the HAF organization).
• Supporting projects that communities determine, manage and benefit from.
• Training people from public and private organizations and community members in facilitating participatory planning.
• Partnering to ensure development is sustainable and transparent.
• Fully utilizing local materials and knowledge, and respecting cultural traditions.
• Promoting friendship between the Moroccan and American people.
