Morocco | In action since 2012
With the goal of providing students with a safe and productive space to spend time after school, Enactus students at Hassania School of Public Affairs launched their Eco-dôme project, which leverages their civil engineering education to construct buildings using durable, plant-based materials. Starting with a design originally made for housing, the team adapted it to build five structures together, forming one youth center that includes a library, a lecture room and more. For the rural Ighrem Noughal community, with limited resources to invest in infrastructure, this was a revolutionary concept, creating three new jobs with the potential to reach nearly 6,000 students.

Team described in one word:
In Fatine’s first year of involvement with the team, she jumped right in, becoming a very enthusiastic and hardworking active member. Her dedication and commitment did not go unnoticed and in recognition of her impact, her peers chose her to be a project manager in her second year. Last year, she had the unique opportunity to travel to San Francisco to present their work and represent their country at the CleanTech Open Global Event. Now, with World Cup quickly approaching, she is excited about yet another opportunity to showcase her team on the global stage, and hopes to meet people from different backgrounds and exchange ideas.

When he started university, Othmane explored a number of different campus organizations and couldn’t decide which one was the best fit for him. When he saw the ‘glass half full’ Enactus video, however, the question was answered and he was thrilled to find an organization that would give him the chance to use his skills and experience to make the world a better place. He now serves as Team Leader and is grateful for the new experiences he has had from being involved, lessons that will last him a lifetime. He is looking forward to the team’s trip to Toronto and hopes to learn as much as he can from the experience, so that he may share it and coach next year’s executive team.
