The Henna Cafe offers education to hundreds of children and adults within our community. The classes we offer are intended to assist people into work: (English language classes, french, spanish, Jananese, written arabic, storytelling, economics, business skills, art, personal development.)

Founded in 2011 the Henna Café Cultural Association operates a café where visitors can enjoy simple local cuisine and safe natural organic henna.  In normal times the profits from the café fund an education programme with up to 8 free classes every day.  Our motto is “Working together to make a difference!”

In response to the COVID crisis Henna Café has repurposed the classroom as a “soup kitchen” providing free nutritionally balanced meals to those in need.  We are currently providing 150 free meals each day. You can support us by visiting the Cafe or if you aren’t able to visit Marrakech the moment please spread the word and if you are able donate to our fund raiser HERE.
