MoroccoBoard strives to empower the Moroccan American Community to attain a higher level of visibility and to increase its political reach, and to become fully active in the American political process. MoroccoBoard seeks  to exert a positive influence on US-Morocco relations.

      Peace Corps Connect engages those who served in the Peace Corps, or share the Peace Corps values, to build communities that inform, inspire, and integrate experiences that promote understanding and appreciation of other countries and cultures and sustainable development across the globe.    Friends of Morocco is an official group at Peace Corps Connect as is the High Atlas Foundation.  The Peace Corps Connect Community is going strong!  Find fellow volunteers, discuss projects, and become a part of the Community if you are not already.

     High Atlas Foundation works to establish development projects in different parts of Morocco that local communities design and manage, and that are in partnership with government and non-government agencies. HAF uses a participatory development approach that includes beneficiaries as active partners in every step of the development process - from prioritizing development goals to project implementation and management to monitoring and evaluation.
