An internal pathway to add liveliness and safety to a village in the High Moroccan Atlas. A pathway toward local economic development by showcasing Morocco’s cultural heritage.
Through the rehabilitation of the internal path, we hope to connect three wonderful initiatives carried out in 1920, 1960, and 2012. The first initiative was building a path leading up to the mosque. The second, in 1960, was the creation of a new branch of the path leading to the centre of the village. Finally, in 2012, a small bridge was built over the Talaat n’Tassim ravine. By rehabilitating this internal path, we will create a pathway to cover the entire village and service important landmarks for tourism and local life.
Enabling children to get to school without using the mountainous and dangerous road. Right now, they have little choice as the internal path is often muddy, dirty, and slippery during the rainy season.
We also aim to connect all the strategic points of the village and give new life to local ancestral heritage (common wells, press, mill, Berber granaries, saguia, etc.). Contribute to the development of an environment that favours working and investing in solidarity for the good of the local people and economic development.
The construction of an eco-museum and a traditional Berber house.
The development of the village, its neighbouring douars and communities as tourist destinations for hiking, getting in touch with nature, independent travel, and cultural discovery.
The development of support structures for producers to help improve production in terms of present-day needs and structures.
The sheer number of accidents on the local route to school strongly motivated our team to take action. The state of disrepair of monuments of cultural significance reconfirmed the urgency of the need to take action for the good of the local people. The immediate development potential is certain. The local people are hardworking and will readily invest in the improvement of their living environment.
A call for subscriptions/help will allow us to complete the pathway rehabilitation project. Complete packages and files will be sent in order to obtain grants. The Artsouk associations and it’s members are in charge of the rehabilitation of the elements of cultural heritage (press, flour mill, granaries, wells, etc.)
