The strong involvement of the Foundation’s partners (the Ministry of National Education, OCP, CDG Foundation, Morocco Highways, Cooper Morocco, BCP...) has allowed the setting up of the program that concerns about 9000 students for the year 2008-2009 with a goal of about 2 millions for the season 2009/2010. The national schools are among the 27.000 Eco-Schools distributed over more than 46 countries.
