Marhaba and welcome to our new, talented intern Niamat Akar, a former student from Université Abdelmalek Essaâdi Tétouan. Since three years, we trade textiles with her father Said Akar in Chefchaouen. During the six months to come, she will provide invaluable support to us on site in northern Morocco and help us bridge the language and culture barriers we face each day with our collaborators.

We look forward to introducing her further to our global network and building many new bridges together with her. Today, we starting setting up and teaching our digital platform for sharing information globally and teaching the basics of storytelling.

Stay tuned for her own story in the next few days.
