High Atlas Foundation

Since 2008, Green Sahara Furniture has been partnering with the High Atlas Foundation, a Moroccan and American non-profit association dedicated to catalyze economic growth and endorse grassroots development in disadvantaged communities throughout Morocco. In 2014, the High Atlas Foundation completed its 1 Million Tree Goal and has since launched a 1 Billion Tree Campaign. The High Atlas Foundation works in many Moroccan communities, including tree planting and irrigation projects in many High Atlas Mountain villages. Recently, the High Atlas Foundation donated an almond sapling to the Eve Branson Foundation Tansghart Woodwork Centre.

MY INSPIRING VISIT TO GEORGE WASHINGTON ACADEMY IN CASABLANCA

David Bult of Green Sahara Furniture, a long-time HAF friend and partner, is also a Board Member of GWA, and he gave me tour of the campus. A memorable part of that day was after my visit to GWA, when I had the chance to see David’s furniture-making shop and to learn more about his vision of making stunning pieces from trees that died naturally, rather than cut down

GREEN SAHARA FURNITURE BUILDING WITH RECLAIMED WOOD

Green Sahara Furniture (GSF), based in Casablanca, Morocco, designs and builds unique, handcrafted, and sustainable furniture and wood decor items. They use natural wood shapes and reclaimed pieces from pruned and fallen trees in many of our projects and they partner with the High Atlas Foundation regarding tree planting, irrigation, and other community development projects in Morocco.

OUR PARTNERS

HAF's partners are critical in assisting with project design and implementation, often providing in-kind assistance, trained technicians, and other necessary expertise and resources to take a project from vision to reality. Our partners also link us to like-minded individuals, help us to raise funds, and do their part to spread the word about HAF's programs, projects, and events.
