Rose Trip Maroc, a charity trek

#CharityTrek

Charity at the heart of the Rose Trip Maroc

Apart from the physical dimension, the Rose Trip Maroc is also a charity trek. From the beginning, Désertours has been collaborating for all of their events with the development projects of the association Enfants du Désert.

During the Rose Trip Maroc trek each hiker is invited to support these charity actions: each step taken in the desert is a step towards solidarity. The all-female trios also gather for the projects of Cancer du sein, parlons-en! association.

Charity with the Enfants du Désert association

For more than fourteen years, Désertours has been collaborating with the Enfants du Désert association (founded by Laetitia Chevallier). Their motto «Learning how to read, write and count is a right for all», perfectly sums up their actions in favor of education and better living conditions for the children of remote regions. Located in the Province of Errachidia, the Enfants du Désert association works in the south of Morocco to improve the children’s education conditions. Since 2005, thanks to our collaboration, fantastic projects have been made possible: 28 new classrooms and 5 schools, new sport and school material, a caravan containing hygiene materials and house renovations. The association focuses on four fields of action: education, health, sustainable development and sponsorship.

 

Through the charity Rose Trip Maroc trek women can, if they wish, financially support the association’s projects.

Today, one of eight women suffer from breast cancer. Since 2012, Désertours has been collaborating with the Cancer du sein, Parlons-en! association through different actions during their all-female sport events. They also take part in the Octobre Rose event that was created to raise awareness and prevention. The Rose Trip Maroc trek organizers wish to support the women who fight against this illness and to raise awareness concerning early diagnosis. As part of the charity actions, the organizers of the Rose Trip Maroc trek offer an athletic challenge in support of the Cancer du sein, Parlons-en ! association. Each team will contribute to this fight against cancer. Come on… be part of a real charity challenge.
