Brahim attended the Oleander Initiative in Hiroshima, Japan during August, 2016
In Hiroshima, Brahim designed educational projects that transmitted the “lessons of Hiroshima” to his students in Tiznit, Morocco.
Brahim applied what he learned in Hiroshima as soon as he returned to his classroom in Tiznit.
He taught his students about the terrible humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and led a peace crane educational activity.
Students learned how to fold origami paper cranes and read the story of Sadako and the 1,000 Paper cranes
The tremendous reception from his students inspired Brahim to go to Ifrane and Tafraoute, two nearby Moroccan towns and implement his Oleander inspired lesson plan.
Brahim’s students created over 500 paper cranes
These cranes will be added to the cranes at the Sadako Sasaki Memorial Statue in Hiroshima in February, 2017
In December, 2016, Brahim organized a conference for the students of Tiznit, Tafraoute and Ifrane in Marrakech. Over 60 students attended
The students performed drama plays on the themes of nuclear weapons and peace.
The first play explored the devastating effects of nuclear weapons
Other plays focused on contemporary issues
This play focused on violence occurring in the MENA region today
Prior to the conference, students in each school produced art around the theme of peace and nuclear disarmament. The final activity at the Marrakesh Student Peace Conference was the announcement of the winner of the art contest between the three schools.
Their work was transferred to tee shirts
The winning tee shirts were given to each participant at the conference
