Casablanca – Aboard their mobile home “Mesk Ellil,” the members of the Atmani family are set to discover the world one continent at a time.
The family of five consists of Anouar Atmani, his wife Malika Atmani, and their three children, Meissa, Mehdi and Maya Atmani.
The name of their ambitious journey, Planet Khmissa, was inspired by the recurring theme of five -a family of five visiting five continents over the course of five years aiming to share their five values with the world. These five values include tolerance, respect of others, curiosity, harmony with the environment, and the sharing of information.
Their goal is to travel the world to learn about new cultures and in turn, to share their Moroccan culture with the world. This real life odyssey began in 2013, where these “citizens of the world” embarked on their first trip to Belgium from Tangier.
Next, they made their way to South America where they aimed to enlighten students of all ages on the cultural wealth of Morocco. From 2013 to today, they have visited cities, villages, schools and universities in Argentina, Bolivia, Chili, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, and Uruguay, where they shared their message of friendship, peace and tolerance.
Three years later, after countless press conferences, interviews, radio shows, they are back in Morocco ready to organize the next step of their incredible family adventure.
