    Today I am here to talk about an association that helps the Syrians refugees in Agadir. The name of our association is “Aidons les réfugiés!” and we have helped them from poverty. We have favored the integration of the children and we have given them clothes, shoes, and food.

    For two years, we have helped more than 200 families and this, thanks to your donations.

    On Monday the 14th of December, we will create a drive to collect winter clothes and shoes, and hot covers at this address: *******, *********, Agadir, 80000.

    Please, answer this, it’s important for us, for you, but above all, for them.

  3. Hello! I’m Mirette and I live in Agadir but I’m from Spain.
    I study in Lycée Français of Agadir.
    My class and I have created an association with the school and some of the teachers. It’s called “Stand up to Cancer”.
    Our association has already helped more than 1000 people, it was 2 years ago. Also, our volunteers have given more than 200.000 dirham for our researches. The teachers and the school staff have given an
    initial budget to make our association a bit more famous by advertising all the Moroccan countries and finally, the students have written all the ideas.
    We are going to have a bake sale at our school and our goal is to earn at least 400 000 dirhams. We’re going to need a lot of volunteers. Everyone is invited to help us and
    I hope that you will be here as well as invite some friends and members of your family.
    Stand up to cancer will bring the Morocco together to raise money to accelerate progress in cancer research and we’re going to bring forward the day where all cancers are cured.

    The UNICEF is an association who helps children with emergency food and by giving education to these underprivileged.
    In 1946 they have protected children from their exploitation and abuses.
    In July 2015 the association travelled in Haiti to witness firsthand the transformative impact that therapeutic food can have on malnourished children who can be successfully treated in their own communities and have seen the progress that has been made for children since an earthquake devastated the country in 2010.
    For this association I ll do everything because it’s a very important association that helps children.
    But if i really to work with UNICEF it ll be a way to give some love and care to sad people as this children and to make them feel they re not alone in this world of egoists and selfishs people thinking only about money and not about what humanity is .

    I m from Agadir and today i am going to talk about my fondation
    Thank you for being here

    Agadir Homeless Kids Fondation

    A person usually shows acts of charity for the love mankind or benefit of society.
    However , creating a generous acts reflects lots of good behavior where selfishness can be very difficult .
    Today , my friends and i decided to start a charity fondation for homeless kids ,
    Members of the organization will carry out a study about protecting homeless kids and there families for being abused .
    There is a great risk for homeless kids to be used by humans trafficking smugglers .
    These kids will be sold as slave , organ donors,prostitution and so on ………
    A recent study revealed Morocco has more than 30 000 homeless kids or so called street childrens.
    Our effort will be based on funding the fondation and spread the word to aware our community of the danger these kids are affected by .
    Homeless kids have a higher percentage to end up criminals ,so our Agadir Homeless Kids Fondation first step is to rent or buy a homes for needed.
    We will try to locate the kids that attend school first and have no where to sleep by providing home for night and creating a file for further assistance getting a housing supported by the government for low income or homeless people.
    The second step is to help them psychologically by giving them sessions to overcome the fear of the past .
    We will work with the kids to help them to stay in school ;
    Third steps is to help them to stay out of trouble and last guide them for brighter future for themselves .
    Agadir Homeless Kids Fondating will open doors of opportunity and hope to homeless kids through three core programs :
    Outreach, Crisis Care, and Rights of Passage ,each playing a specific role in the journey from homelessness to an amazing future .
    These programs is designe to connect, protect,nourish,and transform lives.
    Many thanks and god bless you all

    • Hey,

      I’m glad to see that someone talked about this particular foundation. I know so many things about it but what I want to say to everybody is that we don’t have all this chance to be on this school. Some do and others don’t. We don’t have all this chance to have a Mom or a Dad to call in night because we had a nightmare or because we are scared. And we don’t have all this chance to have our own room and own stuffs So, give the chance to this children to have at least a world where they’ll grow up. I came from it and one thing that I would like to add is that you have to come and share moments with these children and you’ll see how they’re cute and how they need you love and attention.

      Thanks again to you Mr Traumat

  12. Hi everyone,

    My name’s Monia and I wanted to talk about a charity. My classmates and I have decided to get involved and contribute to Comic Relief. As you can see, anything has been done this far in Agadir and we wanted to achieve some very important goals, and bring about positive change in the lives of disadvantaged people which we believe requires a lot of work.
    Comic Relief is a british charity that has existed for 30 years now and has fighted for humans right and poverty. Every single dirham that has been donated is spend on charitable projects.
    So with the help of this charity, we’re going to achieve a lot, like all the slum dwellers will have an improved quality of life, we’ll reduce violence, abuse and exploitation, improve the lives of the vulnerable young people here in Agadir by greeting opportunities to gain access to vital services such as health and education. We are going to raise the money collected from the general public and going to actively use them in events and projects that will be innovative and fun.
    We hope that we’ll eradicate homelessness, disaster relief, poverty and domestic violence and improve health, education and promote social change.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

  13. Hello people of the Internet. Right now, I’m here to represent the 3è, of the French High School of Agadir.

    I’m here to defend the cause of the International Red-Cross. We saw in Agadir that the medical situation was alarming. So, we want to raise at least 250.000 MAD, to provide some help to the people in need. But, until now nothing has really been done to help them.

    We chose the Red-Cross, because of it’s one of the most active foundation worldwide. They have more than 13 Million volunteers across more than 150 Countries! They raised 5Billion Dollars since 1863. Just in 2015, they helped the victims of the Nepalese earth-quake and the Syrians refugees in Europe but also in the Middle-East.

    With the help of the Red-Cross, we are going to organize many auctions in Agadir and even by creating a Web-Site where all the people across the World could donate. In order to reach our goal of 250.000 MAD, with this money we are going to provide more equipment in the Hospitals in the region. But also we will be providing shelters to many homeless women and children.

    Thank you for reading this text!
    We hope we’ll see you around.

    But until now, nothing has really been done to help the needy in Agadir. So, right now, we are going to collect money for the needy ! Right now, we are going to provide food for the homeless ! And right now, we are going to offer health care and build hospitals for sick people !

    Our goal in Agadir is to reach at least 2 000 000 dhs, or 200 000 dollars.
    So, pupils and students here can help us by promoting the charity around family and friends, by giving donations, or by participating in our fundraisings.

    By collecting money and donations, we are going to help poor and elderly people.

    Why not helping the needy ? We must take action !

    Lalla Salma Association Against Cancer was founded in 2005. The association is now called “Lalla Salma Foundation – Prevention and Treatment of Cancers.” In less than three years since its founding, the Lalla Salma Foundation has mobilized efforts to raise public cancer awareness throughout Morocco, launched an ambitious building campaign, organized the first national cancer registry and linked arms with an array of international partners in the fight against cancer. Inspired by the vision and leadership of Her Royal Highness, Princess Lalla Salma, the non-governmental organization is already making significant inroads in improving the quality of cancer management and the ensuring that all Moroccan patients have access to a high standard of cancer care. Early detection projects in breast and cervical cancer are underway, and the Foundation oversees a program of tobacco control is partnership with the Ministry of Health and business and education leaders. In 2006 the Foundation became associate UICC member.

  25. Greetings, i’m Tawfick from a ”Lycée français d’Agadir” 4th grade classroom. On this article, i will represent the organisation ”Soles4Souls”, a charity based in Nashville and
    specialized in collecting from all people/warehouses/footwear companies shoes and give them, free of charges, to people in need. Soles4Souls distributes these shoes regardless of
    religion, race, social class or any other canon.

    Soles4Souls has, since 2005 ,already given more than 11 millions pairs of shoes, which is equal to one pair every seven seconds passing, a truly impressive number.
    The distribution has taken place in many different countries, some of them are United States, Nepal, Kenya, and even more. I can add that Soles4Souls has done an appearance
    in National Geographic’s Green Guide,The New York Times and others channels like the NBC, FOX, BBC, etc.

    Let’s talk about my role in all this jumble. I created a competition/party with the members of the school, other schools and even other companies. This competition will be based
    on many different sports and games. Voluntary sponsors will create a prize pool, the team who wins this will get one tenth of the money, you probably think that it’s not that much
    and i agree, the thing is that it’s still about charity, and nothing else. I would also like to point the fact that the tasks has been divided between the students, that have written all the
    ideas, the teachers, that helped the students make this event occure, and of course, the sponsors, that took the major role, money.

    I thank you for the time you’ve taken to read this, you can also participate by donating shoes, or even money to the association, i assure you that we will make good use of it and
    help people who have never earned a pair of shoes. Farewell.

  27. Hello,

    My name is Lina, I  am a student in LFA in 3°A.

     I have chosen to devote my self to humanitarian missions in Agadir; I will talk about a cause very close to my heart, namely that of disadvantaged  children. For many years, many  fondations have been created. They have undertaken steps to help these young people, like organizing Fundraisers and Building facilities to accommodate them. But these facilities aren’t attractive, and they haven’t given them the desire to stay and evolve.

    That is why I would like to start my own organization, called “Hommy “. By building  facilities, children will be accommodated. Whether orphans or homeless people  , all are welcome. By providing a nicer environment like installing playgrounds, fun activities and sports fields, the people will be more likely to stay and evolve with us. Curriculum will be made available to children and living spaces. My goal is that these young people can success and feel good about themselves.

    I have already participated to an charity action for old homeless people; we organize a lunch in a restaurant out of the city and we had a lot of fun! “Every little bit helps”. Together we can change the world! I hope that you will be generous with the foundation.

    Thank you for your reading! !
