In August we welcomed back our veteran volunteer Declan along with his friends from the CORE Youth Service of Dublin. Thanks to their fundraising and thoughtful attention to FAPE’s needs, CORE donated several bikes for for use in Centre Amane. To ensure that the bikes will always have a smooth ride, CORE youth leaders shared their own hands-on bike repair knowledge and experience in group sessions. Over the course of a week (and between water-balloon contests) CORE and FAPE kids gained valuable team building and mechanical skills that will last well into the future.

The visit ended with a seasonal trip to Agadir filled with beach, fun, and ice-cream. It was an incredible way to end the trip and the hottest week of Moroccan summer!
