Building The Benizid School

Building of the New Benizid School

RifCom Volunteers Paint New School at Benizid September 2015

Over the weekend of 26th September 2015 a group of wonderful RifCom volunteers travelled to the small rural village of Benizid near Bab Taza to help decorate RifCom’s brand new school. 

The school was built in partnership with the Borough Council of Bab Taza, the local Association of Benizid and the Women’s Association of Benizid. 

The Chefchaouen Delegation for Education will be providing the school furniture and equipment and it will run as a state school once it is finished.

  Benizid School Building Project

The RifCom team are very excited to announce that works commenced at the end of February 2015 to build a new primary school at Benizayed (also spelt Benizid) near Bab Taza.

The existing school, which services 260 students, is literally falling down around the ears of the students and is an unsafe environment for these young children to learn.  

So, with our local partners (the Department of Education Chefchaouen, the Borough Council of Bab Taza, the Association of Benizid, the Women’s Association of Benizid, the Architect and the Construction company) a Project Agreement was signed to build a brand new 4 classroom school in a prime location situated at the entrance to the village.   

RifCom is proud to unite these parties who will each contribute in some way to create a true community project benefiting generations of students for years to come.

A special mention to all our 2013 & 2014 challenge fundraisers which without their fantastic contributions this project would not have been possible…too many to mention but ENORMOUS THANKS to you all!!
