The Hand in Hand Association holds its Annual Fun Run

 

The Al Akhawayn University Hand in Hand Association organized on Saturday April 13th, its annual fundraising event "Fun Run". This edition, with the support of partners and sponsors, was marked by several activities including a fair, a marathon and a gala evening.

“Hand in Hand”, created in 1996 and run by AUI students, contributes to the educational and social development of the region. In the field of education, the Association supports schools with supplies, equips libraries and puts into service school transportation in order to fight against non-schooling and school dropout of children living in rural areas. Hand in Hand also organizes awareness campaigns with parents to encourage schooling for girls in rural areas. In the area of health, the Association organizes medical caravans and distributes firewood and clothing to help the rural population cope with the cold.
