"Get involved to perpetuate the social and economic value of the Moussem
The Tan Tan Moussem is an annual multisecular meeting of the nomadic tribes of Saharan Morocco and beyond who find there the opportunity to celebrate their common culture and to establish social and commercial ties.

Tan Tan's Moussem contributes to social cohesion and stimulates the sense of identity and belonging to several mainstreams of national and universal civilization.
The Almouggar Foundation starts to initiate with its partners actions to promote this heritage.
