Tanmirt Expedition II, 2018
We empower Amazigh/Berber communities to take charge of their own future and maintain their own heritage for generations to come through education and green enterprises. We work in the area surrounding Tagounite, Morocco with partners such as Association Atawasol, the Nomad community, local government and Entrepreneurs without Borders.
Sahara is the symbol for the world we want to live in. She guides us on how we want to live our lives: no doors, simply in harmony together with Mother Earth. Let us together make Sahara green.
Around every fire in the precious moments of a still Saharan night, words of wisdom are shared between generations of desert dwellers, nomads. Now, the logs that kept the fire burning have become fewer and fewer. Bring your log. We must keep the fire burning. Education for life.
Together with the Amazigh/Berber Nomads and people close to Tagounite, Sahara, Morocco, we build a sustainable circle to give back to the heart of humanity and make Sahara green again.
"I was born in a family where girls have no education and I listen to them when they say there is a need for education", says Brahim Elaabdouli, regional manager Morocco.
We want to preserve the Nomad culture and life by working together through self-development, increasing trade, organic farming, and making basic life essentials easier such as water, education and earning a living.

Why Vilostrada Foundation
We want to be happy, smiling when then sun rises over a gorgeous mountain pass, when walking down to the garden to pick our own grown vegetables and singing in the rain.
We want them to feel gratitude for what they have.
We want them to meet challenges with an open mind with curiosity for the unknown and their choices to be made out of knowledge and wisdom.
We want them to see that life is a journey with lots of love and many helping hands.
We want them to know that world is their home and together we are all responsible to look after it for coming generations.
We changed our lives in August 2013 and moved to Spain. We decided to show them in action. We decided to begin in December 2013 when visiting a small mountain school in the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco. The journey for the pursuit of wisdom led us to the Sahara in December 2015. Welcome to join our journey. Welcome to our current project:
Tanmirt Education for Life.
