The APEHE is a non-governmental organization with non profit goals. It aspires to the insertion of disabled children into the social structure as a fundamental right of theirs. We work within our own scale of means which is unfortunately so limited that our objectives sometimes seem far ahead and we hope that other associations that care for the well being of the disabled, in general and for disabled children in particular, both in Morocco and abroad, provide us with all kinds of help and support that are possible , in order to make the scope of our action broader and our interference more efficient.

we have now a centre where disabled kids receive education with the supervision of a group of educators, three of which get salaries from the government .It was built thanks to the  efforts of a certain Mrs.Truchet, who is the coordinator of the evangelic church in Rabat, Morooco. She worked tirelessly for quite a long period collecting funds from institutions and organizations in Morocco and abroad, making the necessary contacts and providing all the required documents until this deam of providing Essaouira with a centre for disabled children had come true. The city council provided the land and the necessary permits and the help of the governor of the province of Essaouira, the late Mr. Amine Belcadi was also considerable. Mr. Moudoujy, president of the APEHE, and the rest of the members of the bureau all contributed to the realization of this valuable establishement.

The centre is run by our association. It has 3 classrooms, a collective activity room, an open courtyard as well as a carpentry workshop where children get professional training, making Wood puzzles for kids, which are sold and the money collected is invested into pedagogical projects for the disabled children. There is also a nursery for healthy children open to the public which allows a small income to cover the daily expenses.

The APEHE was founded on the 15th of April 1981. It worked at the "collège sidi Mohammed" school. Then it got an office  at 'Rue d'Alger' in the ancient Medina. In 1990 a new bureau was elected and thanks to the harmony and dynamism that reigned among  the members and to the collaboration of the local authorities and of the town council, the centre was finished and officially inaugurated on the 9th of July 1992 .
