Children in Dreams of their Future Competences

A project by Lillehammer University College, Norway

Welcome to our blog-site!

Action researcher in classChildren in Dreams of their Future Competences is an umbrella project. This is a multifaceted project, including private initiatives for developmental support as well as smaller interrelated action research projects. The project is dedicated to, and actively involves, the inhabitants in Ait Abdi, a small Berber village in the province of Alhaouz located in the High Atlas in Morocco.


The major aim of this “developmental research project” is two-folded:

  • Development: To support the development of life conditions and competences of strategical importance for welfare and well being of children, young people and their families in Ait Abdi.
  • Research: To use research as a strategical tool in supporting the developmental processes in Ait Abdi, and give inspiration to similar processes in other local villages in Al Haouz based on our practical and scientific results.

In this multifaceted enterprise we are dependent on institutions and a supporting network: Lillehammer University College, private donators in our supportive network, coworkers at University of Cady Ayyad in Marrakech, the local associations for Ait Abdi and the community of  Tazart, the province of Alhaouz and the Espace Provincial des Associations de developpement d´Alhaouz.

Dear reader of this blog, whether you are a member of these categories of supporters or not, we are looking forward to your comments to – and involvement in ! – the processes reflected on the pages on this site.
