November 2019 Newsletter Sahara-Roots Foundation

Wishing you all a GREEN, HEALTHY & HAPPY 2020!!
For Sahara-Roots this will be a very exciting year! WHY? With many thanks to a wonderful sponsor we are now able to start building an innovative water-reservoir, designed by Aziza Chaouni and her team, in the small village of Zaouia close to M’hamid El Ghizlane in Southern Morocco. During our visit in April 2019 we had really come to realize that the ground water situation in M’hamid is in a very bad shape and we wanted to find a way to help reduce the use of ground water for our planting activities. Halim Sbai, our partner for our planting activities, was also very driven by this thought. The water reservoir will become the pilot project.  
Dreams come true!

The building of the innovative water reservoir is the beginning of a much larger project: The Joudour Sahara Culture Center (JSCC) consisting of botanical gardens (to show the bio-diversity of the desert), a music school center (to teach & to give traditional music performances), a visitor’s center and an eco-lodge.
