Dar Bouidar

Give children a future.

Who lives here?Dar Bouidar – the first village!

Dar Bouidar is the first village of the Atlas Kinder. It is considered a “beacon”, a model and an example for the construction of other children’s villages.
In addition to the houses, which represent the family home for the Atlas Kinder where they live with their foster moms, there is a school, a kindergarten, a nursery, two doctors’ offices, a therapy center and an “integration house” for disabled children. An amphitheater, a mosque and a farm have also been built in Dar Bouidar.

A place to learn about natureThe model farm

Our first village, Dar Bouidar, has its own model farm with an orchard, a herb garden and a vegetable garden. Tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, artichokes, lemons, oranges, rosemary, sage, mint… everything grows beautifully on our land. Our children should grow up in symbiosis with nature. Panels illustrate about 150 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs (medicinal). Visitors can also find the names of the plants in Latin, Arabic, English and French.
