On Sunday, January 03, 2016, Dads Association of Teachers of English (DATE), in coordination with three main sponsors, especially the American Language Center (ALC), organized a very intimate and highly incredible friendship caravan towards a very remote area nearby Boumalen city. The area is named Ait Toukhssine. The friendship caravan aims at providing the Ait Toukhssine middle school students and their poor families with clothes and shoes, initially donated by the people of Tinghir and Ouarzazat.

Due to the freezing weather as well as the compelling life circumstances the Ait Toukhssine middle school students suffer from, DATE felt it is its duty to stop in that remote area in order to revive those essentially established norms of help and care that are universally shared among us, as living beings on this earth.

The caravan came with a bet to draw a smile on students’ faces and their families. You can’t imagine how terrific it is when you cheer up those middle school students and their families. They eventually felt that they are not alone. They, on the contrary, feel that there is someone there who is ready to give them a push or even a path on their back. That’s one of DATE’s objectives. It has effectively served as the rocket booster of those highly motivated and cute students. The event came as an opportunity to look at the other empty half cup of tea. Put differently, it aimed at giving those students a strong push and a new ambition in their life studies through a variety of activities.

After the opening ceremony, following the reciting of verses of the holly Koran, the headmaster of the middle school gave a welcoming speech expressing his sincere feelings of gratitude to the organization.

DATE members then initiated a set of workshops which included the Slap Hands Game, the Memory Game, Miming, Running Dictation, etc… Those activities aimed essentially at enhancing four skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading. Once DATE members finished presenting their own workshops, they took a short café break. Middle school students were amazed by those funny games, though very primitive.

Last but not least, the Caravan ended on a good note as a team of students from three distinct high schools, namely; Sidi Bouyahya, Lworoud and Ait Ouzin, joined the Ait Toukhssine middle school students for intimate football game.

DATE would like to warmly thank all participants, sponsors, and all high and middle schools of the Dads Region.
