Impact, special achievements & commitmentsEN/FR
Argane Aouzac is a fair trade project involving 550 women in 6 villages of the Indouzal montain, aiming to strengthen women's capacity and autonomy around the argan activity. Women are organized in the Tazghlilte Association, partner of Argan Aouzac. The projects are defined in cooperation with the women based on their needs and their priorities. Thus, social and cultural actions could be carried out (schooling, literacy, water supply, weaving centres, improving access to the villages, etc.). In 2018, in particular, the connection of a village with running water via a well and a pipeline network was carried out, allowing to supply more than 70 families with running water. On the environmental level, the establishment of the argan activity in this mountainous area has allowed since 2006 the stop of the Argan tree cutting, and the valorisation of natural local species.

Argane Aouzac est un projet de Commerce équitable qui implique 500 femmes dans 5 villages de la montagne d’Indouzal, visant à renforcer les capacités et l’autonomie des femmes autour de la production d’huile d’argan. Les femmes sont réunies au sein de l’association Tazghlilte, partenaire d’Argane Aouzac. Les projets sont définis en accord avec les femmes en fonction de leurs besoins et leurs priorités. Ainsi, des actions sociales et culturelles ont pu être menées (scolarisation, alphabétisation, alimentation en eau, centres de tissage, désenclavement, etc.). En 2018, notamment, le raccordement d’un village à l’eau courante via un puits et un réseau de canalisation a été réalisé, permettant d’alimenter plus de 70 familles à l’eau courante. Sur le plan environnemental, l’implantation de l’activité argan dans cette zone montagneuse a permis depuis 2006 l’arrêt de la coupe de l’arganier et la valorisation des espèces naturelles locales.
