2021: Surviving and Thriving in Difficult Times

Here is a little of what we are up to these days:

  • Restaurant in Gueliz: open for lunch Monday through Saturday, 12 to 3pm. Make sure to book a table for Friday couscous!
  • Cooking Classes: we are offering cooking classes so join us when you can.
  • Training program: unfortunately we have not been able to maintain our training program during Covid times due to financial difficulties we have experienced. We hope to relaunch the training program for women from disadvantaged backgrounds in September 2021.
  • Ramadan Food Drive: we are running a Ramadan food drive now to distribute food baskets to families for the blessed month. $50 per basket. Click the donation button in the top right corner.
  • Hope for 1000 families: during lockdown, we successfully distributed food baskets to 2,300 families in Marrakesh with the help of generous donations from all over the world!
  • Pay-it-forward couscous: our customers were able to gift a couscous for a frontline healthcare worker. We were able to distribute over 5,000 free meals.
