Support our work
We strive to keep our projects small and sustainable so that we can make a positive impact on individuals in these unique communities and involve our supporters at every step.
Our team is passionate about the work we do, working closely with Kasbah Tamadot and neighbouring communities, to develop projects that appeal to local needs. We are proud of our achievements over the past 10 years and look forward to creating many more opportunities.
