Morocco | In action since 2007
With the goal of reducing food waste, Enactus students at Hassania School of Public Affairs launched Mistomâr, a low-cost ecological storage space for crops. The units are buried in the ground, providing farmers with a natural solution to eliminate spoilage in their harvest. Along with tackling food waste, the team is creating jobs and empowering local farmers.
Impact(s): 4 jobs created; $500 USD generated; 7 tons of food waste saved
What’s next: The team aims to turn Mistomâr into a project supported by the Moroccan government so it will be affordable to all farmers; the goal is to save 100,000 tons of waste each year.

During her first year in Enactus, Asmae’s team already has won a national competition. “This is one of the remarkable rewards that not only I or even two members have received, but the whole team has received, which reinforced our unity,” she says. This year she is looking forward to connecting with teams from around the world and getting to know more about their projects. Asmae is a civil engineering major who plans to graduate in June 2019.

When a friend introduced Imrane to Enactus, he says he impressed by the quality of its presentations and the impact of those projects on the community. “The biggest success I have achieved through Enactus is contributing to the creation of four social businesses and eight project ideas,” says Imrane, a civil engineering major who plans to graduate in June 2018. He hopes his team will go all the way to the final round this year at Enactus World Cup and make his country prouder than ever before.
