Purpose

The project was organised in order to reignite the link between Jaycees. It was a great opportunity that proved to relieve stress and also allowed us to share a new experience together. Furthermore, our shared purpose was to also solidify the Jaycees spirit and share our values with the wider public, which can often prove to be an effective way to recruit new members. In addition to this, we attempted to expand our network and create new partner relationships with other NGOs in the hope this may allow us to collaborate on other projects and boost our profile.


Overview

The project was organised in a farm in Benslimane, a small city located in 60 km away from Casablanca. Furthermore, in order to ensure the transport of the participants, we coordinated between each other and used carpooling, also we shared the GPS adress to facilitate the access to the farm. Thereby, all the participants were there at 5 p.m ; The team strated to install the telescop while the participants were discussing and savoring the food prepared by farm’s women. Then, we waited for the sunset to start observing the stars and learning more about astronomy.Our NGO’s partner was charged to explain to the participant the star’s location and to present them the mystery of the universe. At the end of the observation, we invited all the participants to share a dinner prepared by the farm’s women. It was a great day full of new informations, fun and sympathy.
