What We Do
What We Do
Assisting Rural Schools
RifCom helps mountain schools in the Rif which desperately need refurbishment, repairs and supplies, and provided with essential assistance and materials. RifCom works with the local community to maintain and protect these projects going forward.
Health, Education & Training
Many communities have little or no access to health services, secondary education and vocational training in the rural areas of the Rif and need to travel long, impractical journeys to the nearest towns to find these services. RifCom has introduced projects which address these issues and is constantly working on adding more.
Sport is an integral part of RifCom’s strategy and helps to build relationships in the communities it strives to assist. A game of football cements trust and friendship far quicker than anything else and also provides opportunities to present positive messages directly to the kids.
Creating Income Initiatives
Helping communities to help themselves is at the core of RifCom’s ethos. Creating business initiatives hand in hand with the local population and providing on-going training and assistance in managing these initiatives, is a highly effective way to provide paths out of poverty for these struggling communities.
Inviting groups to travel to Morocco to participate in community project events is a strong part of RifCom’s identity. RifCom has been organising these successful events since 2009 and continues to offer opportunities for individuals to “give back” and, at the same time, gain authentic hands-on experiences.
Challenging the public to sign up for sponsored treks in remote and stunningly beautiful terrain, with little or no creature comforts, is how the majority of RifCom’s income is derived. RifCom has offered exciting fundraising challenges since 2009 in areas such as the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert in South Morocco.
