Participating in the welfare of neighbour communities is a priority. This is an on-going participative process that we endeavour to build with the stakeholders in the areas in which we work. We contribute in terms of infrastructure, closer access to water, sanitation actions and cultural and social initiatives through the sponsoring of targeted activities.

Rehabilitation of the Imiter Kasbah
The project to rehabilitate the Kasbah in Imiter was implemented in partnership with the Tinghir municipality and the National Human Development Initiative (INDH). The goal is to protect the local cultural and architectural heritage and to create an arts and crafts training centre.
The rehabilitation of this Kasbah restored the original character of the building and converted it into a permanent exhibition centre for the region’s arts and crafts, more particularly silver jewels and accessories. The new occupants of the Kasbah received training in silver working as well as coaching sessions to encourage them and introduce them to sales techniques to improve how they market their products.
