Tadula Zanfi ... show more Association Timouzounin is located in Tadula Zanfi, a small village about 25 kilometers outside the city of Ouarzazate on the road to Marrakech. Most who live in the area of Tadula Zanfi work in agriculture or shepherding sheep. Tadula Zanfi is a unique village in that it was traditionally a Jewish village. It’s name came from a famous jewish leader in Morocco who was from the area. When the Jewish families left around the end of the French colonization of Morocco, the remaining villagers decided to keep the name. Today, the name reflects the rich cultural heritage of its people. After a series of successive droughts in the region, the women of Tadula Zanfi decided to create a female led association that would draw upon this cultural heritage via the weaving of rugs to provide additional income to the villagers. So in 2009, the women founded Association Timozonin which now provides meaningful income to over 20 women in the village. Over 50% of the women involved are single, widowed, or divorced, so their work in the association is their primary source of income.
