Cultural Programs

The Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) supported projects for Morocco include the restoration of ancient and historic buildings, assessment and conservation of rare manuscripts and museum collections, preservation and protection of important archaeological sites, and the documentation of vanishing traditional craft techniques of the cultural heritage of Morocco.

The AFCP program was established by the United States Congress in 2001. The AFCP was developed to support countries in preserving their cultural heritage and to demonstrate U.S. respect for other cultures. To date, the Ambassadors Fund has supported more than 550 projects worldwide, totaling more than $20 million. The AFCP supports the preservation of cultural sites, cultural objects, and forms of traditional cultural expression in more than 100 developing countries around the world.
