The Salaam group just wrapped up their time in Morocco with some beach hugs, some goat kisses, and learning about fog harvesting. Yay for beaches, goats, and water conservation!
They visited with Dar Si Hmad, a local Moroccan NGO that has created a system using large nets to catch fog that settles on the mountains. The fog water is mixed with well water and supplies clean water directly to homes, saving people copious amounts of time as they don’t have to walk long distances to retrieve water from wells. A very innovative approach to clean water access!
