Introducing the Joudour Sahara Music School
Fast-forward to 2015, when PFCF Advisory Board member Stacie Freasier visited Morocco and became enamored of the musical richness of the region. She subsequently connected with the Sbai brothers and began conversations about the potential of a music school being created in their hometown of M’hamid El Ghizlane. Since then, a core team has been assembled that includes of Freasier, PFCF's Director of African Programs Francois Viguie, former Peace Corps Volunteer Thomas Duncan, Moroccan-born architect and TED Fellow Aziza Chaouni, and president of Sahara Roots, Wanda Hebly. These advisors on the Joudour Sahara Music School represent a vast wealth of knowledge and experience on the education and development of youth in M’hamid.
