September 2018

In September 2018, we opened our primary school which is headed by Dr Aziz Ouahrouch.

Four teachers provide lessons to our schoolchildren from grade 1-6 in Arabic and French. English is taught, too! “We want our children to become proud citizens, and excellent education is essential in achieving that,” as Hansjörg Huber, the founder of the Atlas children’s village, explains. “The organisation La Fabrique des Écoles funded the completion of the building structure, something for which we are very grateful.” Would you like to support our school?

Elfin-like, the models floated across the catwalk in the garden of the Hotel Royal Mansour in Marrakech. Haute Couture in dreamlike surroundings, presented by the Oriental Fashion Show and its founder Hind Joudar.

The numerous guests could also enjoy an excellent meal created by three-star French chef Yannick Alleno.

Another highlight was the auctioning of works created by the internationally renowned artist Mahi Binebine.

Of course, the proceeds from both gala events on 21 and 22 September 2018 were donated to our children’s village. We would like to thank the co-organisers and all people involved who helped making the two evenings unforgettable events.

But a fashion show in a royal hotel – and a children’s village? How can these two go together? As Hansjörg Huber, founder of our children’s village, puts it:

“Beautiful women run on the catwalk. The sun and the light surrounding them even light up the shade. Plus we chose a royal place for our event, the most marvellous palace in the world. We want our children to become part of this dream.”

“Nights like this give us wings to fly. Together we join forces and change mindsets. Hope dies last. We do everything to ensure that our little ones are as much loved as any children in the world.”

Imagine the following: a married couple invests around €90,000, has two houses in our children’s village completed, names them for their own daughters and promises to support the new residents of the houses until they turn eighteen.

Unbelievable? But this is exactly what happened.

A donating couple who do not want their names to be published was moved so much by the destiny of our abandoned children that they spontaneously decided to finish the works on houses 8 and 9 and to support the new residents, among them a lot of toddlers. The two houses are named for their own children, Aicha and Loudia, and the parents promise: “We will regard the children who are moving in here as half-siblings of our daughters.”

This is a milestone in the young history of our village!

Would you like to follow that act of generosity (within your financial means, of course)? Would you like to provide children who would not have a chance otherwise with a future? There are a number of ways to support us. Find out how and contact us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
