We all wanted some days to get involved in something that makes difference. To help a community, however small it is the impact, to get in involved in a project.
With the help of some friends, we decided to take the leap to realize this desire, to materialize into action. We decided to mobilize around the issue of education. Education is the basis of development of a country and is a lasting investment in the future. Thus we wanted to participate in the project “Education for the development of the Imlil valley” in Morocco thanks to the NGO “Aide et Action” and “RIM”
