A non-profit health education center in the heart of Marrakech

Dar El Hanane is a non-profit health education and community development initiative based out of our center in the Daoudiate neighborhood of Marrakech, Morocco.  Our community of medical physicians and development practitioners are eager to bring positive change to Marrakech in strong partnership with local players, be they government programs, civil society associations, or good-hearted individuals.


Our vision is to partner with hard-working and innovative Moroccans within the realms of health care, education, and community development for the increase of human flourishing and the common good in Moroccan society.  We have begun by offering classes and support groups to promote a healthier community.  In response to community feedback, we look forward to deepening and broadening our impact.


Dar El Hanane means Compassion House in Arabic because we are a network where the community and our partners are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.


We also represent Gateway Medical Alliance (GMA) in Marrakech. By succeeding in this venture, we will be “standing on the shoulders of giants” as we build on 20 years of life-changing humanitarian work achieved by Dr and Mrs Spiger and many others through GMA in Morocco.
