One of our major projects currently is called ‘Creativity for A better Future’. the project is focused on the establishment of educationally based after school programs in third-world countries, starting with Morocco. the purpose is to develop the minds of the youth and in this way develop the future generations of the society. the children will have a creative outlet involving sports, music, and the arts, thus keeping them from drugs, gangs, and crime. making a difference in the lives of the children of tomorrow will be the drive they need to make a difference in their own countries and this will fuel the change we want to see in the world. http://www.saidafikri.netSponsors:the Washington Moroccan – American ClubMoroccan American Women’s AssociationThe Moroccan National Tourist OfficeThe Fez RestaurantRoyal Air MarocWafin.com
