"Solidarity means helping your neighbour to carry the weight of life and making it easier." H-F Amiel
Crocus-Tifaout is a non-profit association whose goal is to support projects of development in North Africa, collaborating with local partners. We are based in Switzerland and our passion for North Africa was born through various trips and experiences there.
Our Swiss representative has been living in North Africa for 10 years.
We exclusively work in collaboration with trusted and tested local associations.
We know the name of every single person who benefits from our projects. Lives are changed.
If you are in the region of Fribourg over the next few weeks, you'll have the opportunity to meet us on different markets. Original products from Morocco will be on sale, the perfect present for Christmas! We'll be in Vuadens (7.10, 9h-16h), La Roche (28.10, 8h-16h), Villaz-St-Pierre (18.11, 14h-20h and 19.11, 10h-17h), Cottens (8.12, 10h-17h) as well as in Oron-la-Ville (10.12). We're looking forward to meeting you there!
We are currently involved in 4 different projects, including midwifery in a town of Southern Morocco, two educational projects (more than 250 children are benefiting from them), and we are now exploring how we could also partner with a unique association offering apprenticeships to disabled adults in the South of Morocco. Check it out, none of it could happen without your generous support!
Crocus-Tifaout wouldn't exist without the donations of private and corporate supporters. We already have a few ideas for new projects so please get in touch with us if you want to start a partnership.
Would you like to discover our projects from the inside? Crocus-Tours, a travel agency which supports our activities, will organise an epic guided tour for you.
