The team at Marrakech Riad are doing our very best to provide a first class Boutique Hotel experience for our guests. At the same time we think it is important to ‘give back’ where possible particularly in support of Moroccan causes.
The commissions from our bookshop (powered by Amazon) are donated to Moroccan causes. We are sometimes able to donate breaks at our Luxury Riads for use as prizes in Charity Raffles and Auctions, and we have on occasion provided accommodation for fund raisers visiting Marrakech. In this way we have helped raise many thousands of pounds for causes as varied as school funds, medical research, childrens charities and animal charities. We are particularly pleased to have been able to help the British Moroccan Society where Mike and Lucie are active members. Please feel free to make contact if you are organising an event where bringing a little of the Magic of Marrakech could make a difference, for example encouraging generous participants to pay £5,000 for a £500 holiday.
In Marrakech itself we recently helped open the Henna Cafe a project which celebrates the culture of the peoples of Morocco and ‘gives back’ to a local community which has been incredibly welcoming to us and to the guests in our Riads.
More than eighty locals, mainly children, are already benefitting from free tuition in the Henna Cafe classroom. In time we hope to be able to fund a soup kitchen and support projects and charities providing sustainable employment and education in Marrakech and other regions of Morocco.
