Support sustainability in Morocco
Sustainable, organic, creative – a place where everyone feels welcome. That’s our vision for Hakuna Matata, the first organic restaurant on the Moroccan coast. The area around Agadir is fantastic, but a tough place to create something. Help us to remove the obstacles and to give sustainability a kick in this area. Support us with your donation or apply as volunteer.

1001 dreams of sustainability
The camel symbolizes the south of Morocco. To prevent thirst, its humps store up to 150 litres of water. Paradoxes: Drinking water is sold in plastic bottles in Morocco. There’s trash and plastic everywhere. Public bins are missing. People are burning all kind of rubbish. With Hakuna Matata we want to create a slightly different meeting point: A watering hole without plastic, a source of good vibes, creativity and healthy, organic food. The first sustainable restaurant in southern Morocco. In a beautiful place near Agadir on the Moroccan coast. Beautiful, but a hard plaster.
We have been trying to open for almost a year. Most locals do not think outside the box, have little awareness of nature and make each other unnecessary difficulties. We have felt this in our own bodies. We don’t give up, because we believe in good vibes. But for that we need you! We can’t do it alone anymore.
That’s the point
Hakuna Matata – a place where everyone is welcome. Where everyone can feel free – no matter what gender or religion. Where we will offer free workshops on sustainable topics for educating people. Where seasonal organic products are cooked in a sustainable way and not with pesticide-polluted vegetables from the souk. Where furniture is made from natural materials and not from plastic. Where you can stock up on healthy food in the integrated health food store. Where there is room for creativity, workshops and personal realization. Those who live here know that there is not much to do besides surfing. The coffees are usually occupied by men and integration is anything but easy. What encourages us: We are often asked when we are you opening? Many people are waiting for something else that doesn’t just serve tajine, pizza or couscous. But everything that is sustainable or has quality costs enormous amounts of money in Morocco.
We wanted to finance our project with our own funds, but now we realize that we cannot do it on our own. So many obstacles have been put in our way that we need your help. We don’t just want to „bite the dust off” of you, we invite you to discover beautiful Morocco with its breathtaking starry sky, the wonderful scents and the varied nature.
