The Eve Branson Foundation (EBF) support artisanal training, education and healthcare initiatives in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.

They have been working hand-in-hand with Berber communities for over ten years, providing the tools, materials and resources for individuals to learn, practice and share artisanal skills from which they can make an income. The foundation believes that by really getting to know the Berber culture and celebrating its traditions, we can each play a sensitive part in preserving the heritage of these unique communities.

To make this type of immersion and cultural exchange possible EBF have partnered with Airbnb to create a once-in-lifetime social impact experience. The ‘Amazigh Berber Cultural Day’ offering (Amazigh – another word for Berber) is an immersive day spent in the High Atlas Mountains in the traditional Berber villages of Tansghart & Tamgounssi.

Nestled in the mountains, 1300 metres above sea level, these peaceful villages are tucked away from the regular tourist routes. Travellers will take part in traditional Berber cookery lessons, savour the ritual of the Berber mint tea and get creatively hands-on at the craft centres.
