Over the past few years, we have welcomed a number of groups to Sefrou who were interested in getting to know Moroccan culture and history first-hand. Our first group was led by Morocco Exchange, a cross-cultural education non-profit with the aim of “building bridges of genuine human connection between the Muslim and Western worlds”. The second group was a group of high school students led by the organization Where There Be Dragons. Lastly, we hosted a delegation from the Center for Women and Democracy. For each of our groups, we conducted classes teaching the art of our hand-knotted buttons taught by our cooperative members. We also held a number of dialogues about the challenges Moroccan women face in establishing and maintaining a successful cooperative.
If you are passing through Sefrou, please let us know. We would happy to arrange a button-learning class that can also be combined with a luncheon. A portion of the class fees are donated back to the Golden Buttons Association. Class fees vary on the size of the class. Please contact us for further information.
We Would Love to Have You Visit Soon!
