The World March arrives at Tan-Tan

Last Friday 11 of October, after a long journey, the World March arrived, at night, at Tan-Tan, the desert gate.

After a long journey through almost lunar stony landscapes and hills with argan trees, Tan-Tan, the gateway to the Sahara desert, was reached at night.

The Tan-Tan women's group welcomed visitors in a jaima with dates and camel milk, music and food.

But the exotic touch of this reception was undoubtedly a couple of beautiful camels waiting for the members of the Base Team and their companions at the entrance to the venue for what was a dream night.

After a glass of tea, the secretary of the Women's Association Imiltno A Gadir, introduced the various women's associations that had gathered at the place and spoke the president of the Tan-Tan Alkoria Aawini Women's Association.

Then they intervened:

  • Amina Sahif for theAgadir Women's Association
  • Khalid Allwaadidi for theGeneral Confederation of Morocco
  • Solami Omar by theAsafi Association
  • Mariam Bondia and Souad Dauaissi of the association the Sons of Larache
  • and Youssef Abonassar of Marrakech.

Then a real party of integration with traditional music began before the banquet around a succulent dish called tajine of camel and many fruits.

Strong participation of women working with humanist principles

We must highlight in this meeting the strong participation of women, who are working in various fields of society in accordance with humanist principles.

Against all forms of violence, especially against gender violence and with activities aimed at single mothers with children at risk.

Travelers stressed that this growing participation of women coincided with the increased enthusiasm and joy in the World March receptions.

The fishing port of Tan-Tan was visited

The fishing port of Tan-Tan was visited, a place of great influx of ships fishing in the area.

One of the most important fishing centers in Morocco.

The fishermen invited to visit the interior of the boats where the tasks are performed, checking the hard, and sometimes unfortunate, conditions in which they work.

The delegation stayed the night in Tan-Tan, at the house of the President of the Women's Association of the city, who offered a typical breakfast the next day, before leaving the city at 13: 30, grateful for the attention received
