Energy renovation of the Jaafar Bnou Atia school

At the Naturgy Foundation we believe in the importance of making society’s progress and economic development compatible with the efficient use of energy, within the framework of collaboration with the associations and schools of municipalities in areas crossed by the Magreb-Europa Gas Pipeline.

In 2019, work was carried out at the Jaafar Bnou Atia school, located in the cooperative Douar El Jazoulia, Mjaara Common, in the province of Ouezzane. This project facilitated access to school for a disadvantaged group, 60% of whom were young girls. This school was selected due to the lack of sanitary infrastructure and basic sanitation.

Reform of the ``Doughmaniya School``

Through this initiative, the Naturgy Foundation, in collaboration with Metragaz (a company that operates and maintains the Moroccan section of the Maghreb-Europe gas pipeline), the Doughmaniya school is rehabilitated, located in the province of Jerada, next to the Algerian-Moroccan border. 124 girls and boys belonging to families of disadvantaged groups receive training.

The school does not have heating or hot water, the temperatures in winter can reach below zero degrees and both the bathrooms and the recreation and study areas are in a poor state of conservation. The rehabilitation works seek energy and environmental solutions in order to improve the quality of life in the school and thus facilitate access to education.

The reform’s works of the school consist of: the installation of an electric wall heating system in classrooms; the installation of a solar hot water system, the repair and improvement of the bathrooms and installation of showers, the creation of a library and the adaptation and improvement of the recreation area, including the planting of trees.
