Project

World Unite supports the Hajrat Nhal Primary School in the village Hajrat Nhal, which was awarded an international “green” label for incorporating environmental education and awareness activities as an integral part of the curriculum. The students are taught concepts such as the fight against desertification, renewable energy, and water and resource use. In addition they learn about the preservation of fauna, flora and cultural heritage, and sustainability and awareness of nature and the environment. These topics are not usually addressed in public schools.

The families from the rural area of the village are generally of low-income and low-educational level. The school works to actively involve parents of students and their families in their environmental initiative. The village is located in the nature reserve “Lac Tahaddart,” about 25 km outside of Tangier, which is a wetland with rich biodiversity – an important refuge for many birds such as bustards.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 29, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
