About us and the association

Le Savoir au Village is a Swiss non-profit registered charity association. She was born from the request of a group of Berber women to acquire various sorts of knowledge in order to improve their living conditions. The first encounter took place in October 2009 in the village of Douar Batn Chih with Amina Suchet and Sophia Corsi, the initiators of the project.

The association was officially created 2 May 2010, according to the article 60 of the Swiss Civil Code. Since October 2011, it is recognized as promoting the public interest and registered for tax exempt.

In Morocco, the organization has formally been recognized in April 2013. It is a separated entity from the Swiss organization and composed by local women.
