What is the Eve Branson Foundation?

The mission of the Eve Branson Foundation is to enrich the lives of people in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.  We achieve this through the provision of dedicated rural centres where young people can access training programmes, tools and resources to learn traditional skills such as woodworking, tailoring and weaving. The centres encourage the production and selling of artisan goods so that more young people are able to generate a small income for themselves and their families. We support community initiatives alongside our centres that promote health, education and wellbeing.  Our vision is for these unique Berber communities to thrive for future generations.
