Association Ras el Maa Multi-Purpose Centre
In early December 2014, the RifCom team visited the multi-purpose community centre run by Association Ras el Maa, in the medina of Chefchaouen. RifCom had recently made a donation to the Association consisting of 30 classroom tables, 30 classroom chairs, 1 storage cupboard, 2 whiteboards, a computer and 4 visitor’s chairs. In addition, an abundance of school stationery and equipment was also donated by Rotary Interact of Aloha College, Marbella (via RifCom). By way of thanks, Association Ras el Maa presented RifCom with a beautiful gift (see photo’s below) and an invitation to lunch, which was very much enjoyed by the team.
The multi-purpose community centre provides the poor community of Ras el Maa with a kindergarten, extra classes for school children and also adult classes. In addition, the centre offers its premises for functions and celebrations for families who cannot afford to hire premises elsewhere. This is a great example of a community helping itself with dedicated volunteers and is well worth RifCom’s support.
