Since 2005, The Eve Branson Foundation has been instrumental in developing initiatives in collaboration with Berber communities living close to Kasbah Tamadot. The most recent project that Eve has personally been responsible for driving forward is the opening of a new woodwork centre in Asni.
The launch of the Tansghart Woodwork Centre was developed in partnership with Green Sahara Furniture. The scheme has already welcomed eight young trainees from the local community who had recently left or dropped out of school. Houssain, aged 19, is one of our woodwork trainees. When asked what he wanted to do in the future, he replied: This exactly. I want to be a woodworker. If someone can show me the correct way to build things: doors, tables, windows, desks, carving everything is woodworking.
Eve was given a tour of the facility and had the opportunity to see the results of the boys training first hand. After the successful launch of the workshop, the aim is that many more young people will be able to learn the trade of carpentry, improving their skills and future job opportunities.
If you are visiting Kasbah Tamadot, the students handcrafted furniture and jewellery will shortly be available to buy in the Berber Boutique. Trips to the woodwork centre can also be organised if you would like to see the trainees putting their new skills into practice.
