Donations to the population

Morocco and other emerging markets are flooded with donations of clothing, pens and notebooks. Although the "gift" be happy, this action is only a fleeting without help bring a real solution.
Note that these donations generate expectations, jealousies and internal conflicts so that the casual visitor can not manage.

To meet the needs of people should get real help, support developed on the basis of sustainable projects.
These can be achieved by providing financing and related projects to meet assessed needs, such as: infrastructure, access to drinking water, housing, education and activities generating income. These projects are aimed either at individual or at community.
If you want to participate in sustainable actions, we can possibly advise you or direct you to organizations. We even we participate in small actions.

At Riad Tabhirte: Many of our visitors we offer donations of clothes. Although a surge of the heart, we no longer want to be the intermediary for these types of donations, because sustainable development assistance that we practice is not part of this logic. We do not encourage this approach and you will be solely responsible for this choice.

To preserve the balance of social relations we have with local people and with our neighbors, we hope that no such donation is made within the Guest house or in his immediate social environment.
Thank you for contributing your compliance with our commitments in local development.
