We live here in New York and see many of our neighbors ship items in barrels to Africa and they pay one price for the entire barrel no matter how heavy. They don't deliver to morocco cause there isn't enough of cargo.
Maybe you can call us and between the both of us we can come up with a solution . Royal air Maroc should give us a discount for charity or the consulate .....
It's a very much needed charity to go to the most charitable of people in need.
We would like to help....
I will continue to my last breath to help & give to these orphans and children in the Altlas and mothers without husbands...this is my promise to Allah.
Please call mr. Hat tab Chahir & Rachel Chahir

Does anyone have an idea of a cheaper way to ship some donated clothes to Morocco? Or if anyone is planning a trip there soon? I would really appreciate any help! I have been working with the help of some friends and their families in Boston to gather around 250lbs of used clothes for kids and women in a rural village in the high atlas mountains where winter is so frigid and most of these kids can't make it to school! We have asked at FedEx and they told us a lot of money that we can't pay ($4,500!!!). Any help or suggestions to get these clothes to the kids ASAP would be much appreciated.

It would be very helpful to add a classifieds section to this wonderful website. I noticed recently that so many familied living in the US are looking for live in or out nanny/housekeeper and it will be helpful to have posts online for job seekeds and those who offer positions to work.
In this context we are one of the families lokking to hire a live in nanny, please eamil me at email@example.com if you know someone interested.
I am a 16 year old Moroccan teenager living in London. It's been my dream for years to attend university in New York City. I'm looking to enrol at Fashion Institute of Technology to pursue an Advertising and Marketing degree in the fall of 2013. I have a problem that I hope you guys, as my fellow people from my home country, can assist me with. In order to fund my studies I need to take out a loan from Sallie Mae, however they require a co-signer who's got US citizenship or permanent residency status. This is the only obstacle I face to chase my dream, I'm prepared to award the co-signer with $2,000 if they decide to co-sign my loan. Please do everything you can my brother/sister. The university I'm going to assist you to find a job and most students have a few job offers in the beginning of their last year. Thank you very much, may Allah bless you.

In France, it was (and is) missing this dynamic collective: tbarkallah 3alikoum.
I'm Hafid, I was born in France and my parents are Moroccans. Last year when I won the green card, I stopped my PhD in Geography and Regional Planning (my subject was the Moroccan migration). I have been in New York since 21 January. Now I'm looking for a housing (studio or colocation) and a job to live here, because I can't stay in my friend's apt (he is French and he said me you need to find something else).
now I ask you if you can help me to start my American dream.
I hope one day, when my situation will be better, help MAHA for children education. I could teach the history and geography of Morocco and France. When I was younger I went with my family every summer to morocco, I realize it was a chance for me, this is the reason that I would like offer my French and Moroccan experiences. I said it to my French friend a few weeks ago. Later, my son will go study in MAHA, I'm sure.
Cordially, good luck to MAHA.
you can answer me by email: email@example.com

Zahrate Al Maghrib \ Moroccan Roses \ Roses du Maroc is a participating team (Miryem Salah & Sanâa Kiadi) to The Rose Des Sables Trophy which is a female competition that's taking place in Morocco, where the human dimension and the chance for each participant to succeed in a major sporting project are essential. The 12th edition will take place between 11 and 21 October 2012. But MOST of all, it's a humanitarian project that will help raise funds to support Moroccan desert Children and families in need in the villages. All the funds will be an important contribution to major projects like: Schools Construction, Solar water pump installation, or children surgeries..and much much more. But also to provide basics such hygiene products, babies equipment, clothes and school supplies for all the little angels in the south of Morocco. Inshallah!
We need everyone's support and encouragement. Please visit our Facebook page, like and share. We will highly appreciate it.

How are you and your family. I am a Moroccan who had a chance to study here in New York's Universities. I am almost done with my Masters' degree.
First of all, your english is not that bad, I do have an idea of the cost of the tuition. There are some affordable schools, where you can graduate with computers and network major.
If you really want to have all the details and all the information with how to apply and pay and apply for the student visa, please call this number or send a message on my behalf, my name is Hafida Torres Balalioui.
Good luck and inshallah see you here as a good example of Moroccan students in USA.

Thank you Hasnaa for this statement. It is our job to help the community, we are here for you, and you are here for us, and may Allah give us the strength to do all what we can to make you happy brothers and sisters. MAHA's members work together hand in hand for the community. We need your psychological and material support to show the world that the Moroccans are capable to overcome all the obstacles outside the mother and beloved country Morocco. I love Morocco.
Hafida Torres Balalioui (11/23/2011)
I want to say thank you for your help, you gave me your hand when i needed it. i want to share my story and tell others what you have done for me. well i was looking for a job, my friend told me that's we have now Moroccan association in bay ridge and it seems that the members are very active and they are there for us to help. i got the business card and i emailed them my resume explaining my situation. i was happy when i got answer from mrs hafida within 24 hrs asking if iam interested to work in health care field, and what was amazing in her email that's my first email was forwarded to more than 5 members, which made me feel secure and iam in right hands. later on we started the process and guess what, with her guidance and real help i got job after 2 months. right now she still helping me everyday, made me feel that's she is my sister. for real all maha members are respectful, very serious about what they are doing and they stay with you until you find your path.

Thank you for your nice comment on the Moroccan American Home Association and the initiative that makes us happy and encourages us to go forward. Together we will succeed here in America, and there in our beloved country and elsewhere. Together we will reach our goals and make our dreams come true.
Again, thank yu sister Fatna, and welcome to Brooklyn, NY.

I am moroccan, living in Morocco, i just want to congratulate you for this good job, really it's very nice to see moroccans together working for something interesting especially overseas!!
Allah be with you!!!!
I would like to use this forum to give M.A.H.A's founders and its members a proper recognition for what they have done for our deceased sister Wafaa and her family.
I also would like to mention how proud I felt when I came to that diner on Thursday night and see a lot of brothers that showed up in such a short notice to lend their support (I am sure that many other brothers did support but were unable to attend). It was really a moment of pride for me to see us gathered together for the same reason.
I pray God to bring us together in more future gatherings that would unify us and make us a very strong community.
Anis Aouam (09/19/2011)
Oum Mohammed (09/15/2011)
You make all of us proud of being Moroccan.
I really wish all the best to M.A.H.A, and I strongly believe that we can reach new goals, cross milestones, overcome obstacles when we don’t do that alone and we have many behind and with us.
I also believe that whenever moroccans get together, problems get smaller, and our community can only get better, as long as we help where help is needed with unmatched integrity and energy.By joining with like-minded people we can accomplish great things.
And so I say thank you for all the good you do.
My name is Faycal Hafnaoui, I am a 19 years old student and I will attend to the New York film Academy on the acting Course at the beginning of October.
I have unfortunately not found yet a place to live in New York and I have had quit a fair amount of bad experience with student housing therefor I will be very interested by the idea of living with a family, if possible a Moroccan family as I am Moroccan myself.
I will be very greatfull if you could help me with my situation.
Faycal Hafnaoui (09/13/2011)
If you, by any chance, know members of the artistic world, I would like to meet them . Requirements are acting/writing experience, in french and arabic.
francois grenier (09/10/2011)
However, please allow me to state some personal points of view about this party:
Points of Strength:
MAHA is able to bring us together once again.
New faces showed up (indication of growth) .
Sweet cakes and typically Moroccan tea (indication of generosity) .
Absence of fear and indifference (pride of belonging to this organization) .
Allowing the Arabic teacher to speak to the crowd is a great thing (indication of acknowledgement) .
The speech of Youness Ayoub is so fruitful. His focus on education and Arabic as a language is so great .
All speeches were brief and to the point (professionalism) .
Points of weakness: (Nobody can advance with no constructive criticism) .
Again, the start of the meeting was delayed for more than 1 hour. Please get rid of the so called ‘Moroccan Rendezvous’ If that’s a habit, we will consider showing up late, too.
Too many people surrounding the microphone stand at the same time (Our American guest were watching your back only. I am afraid that they might feel that they are ignored. Obviously, we don’t see them and they don’t see us) .
Quality of audio is poor – people in the back were unable to hear most of the speeches. .
Finally, I would like to welcome our new doctor and I would be the first person to transfer my family to her office once she has one.
Thanks once again
Second, I would like to properly thank them for nominating me "Moroccan of the Month". They caught me by surprise when they announced it and was not prepared to speak, plus my mind was preoccupied with my daughter who fell on her head just before I came to the meeting. Thanks to God she's ok even though she gave me quiet a scare.
I want the board members of MAHA to know that I sincerely appreciate their nomination, even though I wish that I was told before hand so I can prepare a nice speech :). I want them as well as the other loyal and encouraging members to know that I strongly believe in their commitment to MAHA and their good intentions. I wish them nothing but the best.
Last but not least, I want to direct the attention to MAHA's present members as well as the future potential ones to please help this association financially. We need to understand that we are their only mean of financial support. I hope that every member would think for one minute for him or herself if they want to see our Moroccan community here in New York united and strong. If a slight positive thought about that crosses your mind, then please do not hesitate to help this association. We need to understand that we as members will be the primary beneficiaries of it's services.
PLEASE NOTE THAT NO ONE HAS ASKED ME TO WRITE THIS, I AM ONLY DOING IT OUT OF ENVY, GREAT DESIRE AND HOPE TO ONE DAY SEE A UNITED STRONG MOROCCAN COMMUNITY THAT IS NO LONGER THE JOKE OR EXAMPLE OF NON UNITY.

adil oualim (08/16/2011)
I would like to respond to your comments about the polical views of MAHA's members. This matter was discussed by the board during some of their previous meetings during which I was present. I believe that all board members collectively agree that this association has no political agenda and therefore will sustain from getting into politics or expressing political views. As far as the board members are concerned, their political views are their own and they are free to express them anyhow and anywhere, of course with the exception that they can never mention the association (MAHA) as it was made clear by it's president brother Adil.
We have to understand that these board members have their own personal political views and as members of this association we should respect that and trust them that they have no political agenda as was stated by MAHA's board members.

I wish you happy Ramadan.
I have a question for you:
In the meeting that took place in Cafe Noujoum couple of months ago, there were 11 board members.
In your website, you have some different names. Did anybody resign? If so, who replaced them? and how did you decide on replacing them without an assembly general of the Association.
That was my only question, your reply might trigger other.
I hope this post will pass your filter and be advertised on your website.
Other than that, you guys are doing great job and we are so much grateful to you.
Dear Sister and Brothers,
It is a pleasure to be part of the Moroccan community and my goal is to be a positive and helpful member for my people. I want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for the time and the efforts that you are putting in to make the impossible possible.
The story of the old man who asked his kids to each bring him two sticks. He told them break the first one individually. Obviously, it was an easy thing to do. The father then asked them to put all of their second sticks together and try to repeat the first action. The kids were surprised that the bundle didn’t break. By the lesson that the father tried to teach them, he showed them to stick together and use their strengths to move on in a positive way.
We have to help each other and take advantage of the fact that we are Moroccans in America. We are smart and we achieve our goals no matter what.
NEVER GIVE UP IN LIFE
Thank you again.

I believe that my dear brothers at MAHA and its loyal members are a great example of
the people that Dale Carnegie is talking about. I hope and pray God that the Moroccan
American House Association will bring us together as one and only then God Willing we
can achieve anything for our Moroccan community here in New York and beyond.
May this coming blessed month of Ramadan brings us peace and happiness.

My name is Jihad Hajjouji, and I'm a Moroccan student studying in Vermont. There aren't many of us over here but it's great to find this online platform nonetheless. Perhaps I should pay you a visit next time I come to NYC.
On a different note, I just have a question: I sent my passport for renewal to the Moroccan consulate in NYC and I haven't received it yet (after about three weeks), the website says I should allow ten days and I'm planning on leaving for Morocco soon. As you can imagine, no one is picking up the phone or replying to e-mails. Are any of you familiar with the consulate? how does that work? and any advice for my situation? Any info would be highly appreciated.
Jihad Hajjouji (07/14/2011)
First of all, I would like to thank MAHA about the hard work in making this Moroccan association real and bringing the Moroccans together. My name is Abdessamad Kharmaj. I am a Moroccan who lives in New York City. I am currently doing my internship at the Mayor's Office of Adult Education a program called We Are New York to Learn English. I am helping people with limited English skills to enroll in free English conversation classes around the city.
