President of the association
This association's work mainly focuses on enhancing rural and sustainable tourism and development of rural areas in Morocco. Created in 2018, the association's main work focuses on helping populations in need from the rural commune of Eddir and population whose living conditions are particularly difficult. Help is given through touristic activity in the region. With this objective in mind, the association concentrates its energy on the rural and mountain areas which have only ever been accessible via small tracks.
