The number of Nomads in the desert rapidly decreases. We work with the Nomads that want to stay and work in the desert.The Vilostrada Foundations seeks to find ways to preserve the lifestyle and re-establish sustainable living conditions.
Education for life ensures:
- Women empowerment
- Sharing of knowledge
How we work?
We invest the money we raise to build sustainable, community-owned projects in the desert region. We aim to give frequent reports back to our donors on our achievements.
We run the Tanmirt Education for Life project together with the Nomads and the local Berber communities in the desert region close to Zagora, Morocco. Our regional manager Brahim Elaabdouli, regional manager and eco-guide at Caravane Desert et Montagne, oversee all work progress locally.
Our foundation assisted the Nomads in forming their own association for development in January 2017 run by a local board of five people, three of them are women and a woman holds the presidency!
Whatsapp and facebook groups with lots of weekly dialogue gives us a sense of shared work space across the globe. The Vilostrada Foundation seeks to fuel local initiatives by adding education and expertise where needed.
