Rabat- The OCP Group has launched a corporate volunteering initiative for farmers within its “Act4Farmers” program.
The initiative, launched yesterday in the context of the new proximity and support campaign, “Al Moutmir Li Khadamt Al Qorb,” (Proximity Services) held October 9-11, offered expertise and training to the farmers of Kasbat Al Trach in Oued Zem, 150 kilometers southeast of Casablanca, in order to improve the local ecosystem.
The program, which is also part of a bigger project, Act4Community, also aims to initiate OCP’s partners to the sustainable development of Moroccan localities that foster employment and economic growth.
The campaign included an agricultural repository, mobile laboratories for soil analysis, and adapted trainings.
The Act4Community project, launched in July of last year, is meant to enhance investment and social projects that will directly benefit the community.
“Al Moutmir Li Khadamt Al Qorb” focuses on the sustainable development of the agricultural sector in Morocco.
Involving a team of agronomists in charge of regional rural development, the program is launching operations in 28 provinces to introduce new sustainable methods to local farmers. Trainings will be at the center of these operations, and the teams are already on site to accompany farmers and monitor their work to improve their practices.
