To officially launch its MAE program, AAF chose the Ben Smim village to be the first beneficiary of the preschool constructions. In fact, the first pilot project has been erected and it was built in a small village called Zaouiat Ben Smim. The preschool was registered under the name “Maternelle Aicha Boubker".
The construction of the first project knew a great success with a great collaboration with local authorities and with the subsidiary of national education department of the region, concerning all the different needed authorisations. Such projects are very welcome due to the local needs and the financial deficit that communes are facing.
The construction started in 2016 and was achieved in mid 2018, before the start of 2018’s academic year.
