Renowned photographer Zack Arias made this beautiful video during the two weeks he spent with CIFD Project Managers in Morocco last year. He and his camera winded through the High Atlas Mountains to explore the unpaved gravel paths that lead to local schools. CIFD Project Managers introduced Zack to the local schoolchildren who go those schools. The students and their communities are eagerly awaiting a new bus system that will safely and reliably transport them to and from school, allowing them to stay enrolled even when the weather gets rough.
CIFD is currently raising funds for a pilot bus system that will serve 12 villages in Ouarzazate. Our goal is to expand the pilot program - to make education accessible to children in all of the region's 50+ villages.
