I have been with the Eve Branson Foundation (EBF) since its conception over 10 years ago and have hosted tours in the Atlas Mountains all that time. A Berber myself, I grew up in rural Morocco and know the region inside out. I am fluent in four languages; Modern Standard Arabic, Moroccan Berber, French and English. Working for Eve and the Eve Branson Foundation is the most important experience of my life. It makes me very proud to see the local communities we support so happy, and that our work here has such a profound and positive impact".
