Dar Si Hmad for Development, Education and Culture is an independent nonprofit organization founded in 2010 promoting local culture and sustainable initiatives through education and the integration of scientific ingenuity in Southwest Morocco. We operate North Africa's largest fog harvesting project, providing villages with access to potable water. Our Water School and Girls' E-Learning Programs build capacity in the Anti-Atlas Mountains. Through our Ethnographic Field School, researchers and students engage with local communities in Agadir, Sidi Ifni, and the rural Aït Baamrane region for meaningful cross-cultural exchange.

Dar Si Hmad joins the IIE Generation Study Abroad Initiative

We are thrilled to announce that Dar Si Hmad for Development, Education and Culture has joined the Institute of International Education's Generation Study Abroad initiative to help more Americans to gain international experience through study abroad programs. Dar Si Hmad commits to conducting new and expanding activities that help encourage international participation in study, internship and research in Southwest Morocco.

Morocco is increasingly becoming an important destination for scholarship and language education. As a result, Dar Si Hmad is positioning the organization to lead these efforts in the southern region of the country. Since 2010, Dar Si Hmad has invited university students and professors to participate in our Ethnographic Field-School, engaging firsthand in the culture through our experiential approach. Since then, Dar Si Hmad has grown to offer language instruction in three different Arabic dialects and the local language of the South, Tashelhit Berber, research support, a home-stay program and internship opportunities in meaningful rural development projects.

Under this new partnership with the Institute of International Education, Dar Si Hmad is taking concrete steps to expand opportunities for study abroad. Take a look at our info-graphic below, and please contact Dar Si Hmad for further information on our programs. We welcome students, faculty, interns, researchers and all "movers and shakers" to join us!
