For the rural component of our global health program, we partner with the Atlas Cultural Foundation, an American NGO, and SMNID (“forward” in Berber), a local NGO of the Zawiyat Ahansal Community, located in the High Atlas mountains.
The mission of the Atlas Cultural Foundation is to help underserved Moroccans, especially women and children, improve their quality of life through locally determined development projects. The ACF focuses on sustainable development through three interrelated areas: community health and health education, architectural restoration, and children’s education and literacy.
