Centre Fiers et Forts
The Centre Fiers et Forts (The Proud and Strong Center) is a welcome center for underprivileged children in Tamesloht, Marrakech. As of today, the center welcomes and cares for 105 children. In 2004, Dorothea Eijkman – Severiens, called Madou, had the initiative of protecting these underprivileged children.
The village of Tamesloht, though holder of a rich history, suffered a long period of drought, bringing exodus and poverty. The children were the first victims. With poverty and diseases, came family breakdowns, leaving children uncared for, out of school, to their own device.
The Centre Fiers et Forts wants to protect and love these children, help them blossom and build a future in dignity. Our mission is to offer the children the best chances to become independent in society.
