RIM Association created the first girls’ home in Asni, enabling Zahira and other girls living in distant douars to continue their schooling in college and high school.
Wafa Skalli, president of RIM, had told us of an interview she had with Zahira: the question “what more could you do for you?” Her response had moved us: “that other girls in the valley could benefit They also of this chance that I had ”
A few months later, thanks to the unwavering mobilization of the RIM volunteers and in particular of Azelarab Alaoui, the team on site, the CSSF and our Association “On the way to school”, we are happy and Proud to announce to you that a new home – run by the local association Agharas N’Tinmel (on the way of the school in Berber 🙂 was born in early November and hosts 20 young girls students of the college of Asni !
On our way there a few days ago, accompanied by Zahira and a second class of the Lycée Arbez Carme we were able to meet them and meet the people who supervise them.
Of course, beyond its implementation and start-up, we continue to raise funds for its operation.
Are you interested in this project?
Know that 50 euros per month per girl are enough to cover the expenses of their reception.
You most certainly remember SAMUEL in his wheelchair who, helped by his two younger brothers, was going through a chaotic path to his school.
One of his dreams: to be more autonomous is near to realize!
Thanks to the ingenuity of a mechanic, who will transform a scooter into a three-wheeled vehicle, SAMUEL will enjoy freedom!
The association KUTASHTA – our partner in India – follows the different stages: purchase of the scooter, mechanical transformation, learning of driving.
We can’t wait to receiving the first pictures of SAMUEL on his scooter! In the meantime here are the ones taken by our partner during the purchase and delivery of the keys to SAMUEL.

He lives in the rocky desert of Wadi Abu Hindi, surrounded by three brothers and three sisters, the largest is 18 years old and the youngest was 1.5 years.
YOUSSEF‘s parents are aware that the world has changed. The hope is elsewhere now. They are betting on instruction to give their children a different future.

Earlier this year, Mr and Mrs LEO have contacted our Association. Very affected by the episode of the Way of the School of Franklyn and Olivier, they have expressed a strong desire to support the childrens.
We contacted them, and in all transparency, the detailed budget of the costs of their education -Price of schooling (that is the word used to Mada for school fees), school supplies, uniforms – and also expenditure necessary to improve the comfort of their small hut where they live alone all week -Purchase a mattress, sheets, kitchen equipment, solar lamp etc …. not to mention some new clothes and shoes and a pot for food.
The partnership that we signed in February 2016 with the Association Les Enfants du Soleil, based in Madagascar -association which helps abandoned children- allows us to send donations safely: Les Enfants du Soleil communicates to us every quarter news of Franklyn and Olivier and their families they visit them, speak with the school principal, establish contact with the family. This local relay is essential for us and allows us to pass on to their Godfather and Godmother.
It is with great emotion that we received the first letters of Franklyn, Olivier, their dad, indicating how this assistance was timely and properly used.
Mr and Mrs LEO address their letters, pictures of their family and are very happy with this sponsorship. A big thank you to them !
Zahira lives at home Young Women Tigmi Nisti in the valley of Imlil Asni, with her two friends Zineb and Noura. Her little sister – Aziza is also resident.
