Shems’y Village for Orphans
“Wards of the Nation”


Our project

            Shems’y Village of orphans

                 “Wards of the Nation”
As part of this humanitarian initiative, the Shems'y Village was set up in the El Haouz region. This village will serve as a refuge to accommodate 150 orphans. The main objective is to create a haven of peace where these children can regain a feeling of well-being and security. Within the Shems'y Village, infrastructure will be dedicated to:
  • Education,
  • Teaching,
  • Art, culture and sport,
  • New digital technology,
  • Social and psychological support.
The vision is to support orphans in their reconstruction process and guide them towards a bright future despite the challenges they have faced. A team made up of educators, cultural specialists and social workers will be present to carefully monitor their growth and overall development.
The Shems'y Village is considered to have a significant impact on the education of children, their personal reconstruction, and their opening to more promising future prospects. Each child is considered a seed of hope for the future of the country, and AMESIP is determined to support them throughout their journey.

V. Actions:

AMESIP has started a first training session for its future social workers. During this introductory meeting, needs were identified, roles were introduced, and an overview of the upcoming training program was given. Then, a three-week advanced training phase, supervised by experts in psychology and support for children in difficult situations, was scheduled. Following this training, these social workers will join the team at Chems'y Village, where they will provide essential support to the affected orphaned children of El Haouz.

The Arushiom Foundation had the chance to meet on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, the AMESIP team who  will be working with the orphaned children of Amimiz in a few weeks.
The subject of this workshop was the impact of the subconscious on trauma. The speakers had the chance to see how it is possible to permanently remove fears by working at the subconscious level.
Master Richard gave them the experience and will return in 2024 to work on site with the team and the children in order to help them with the traumas they experienced.


Advanced training day for the benefit of social workers from the Shems'y AMEZMIZ village: Exploration of methods and procedures in social investigation under the guidance of Mr. Lahsen Marsane, sociologist. Deciphering advanced techniques for data collection, case analysis, and communication with individuals and communities. A fascinating journey into the world of social investigation.
