Titan solidarity
Morocco has warmly welcomed us year after year. During this time we have moved around among the provinces of Er-Rachidia, Ouarzazate, the Plateau du Rekkam and Ifrane, and have always been able to count on the collaboration of the authorities and the people of the area.

For RPM, the organiser of the race, it has always been a priority to give back to the country everything that it gives to us year after year.
ACTION 2017: "Volver a oír para volver a vivir"
Solidarity actions have grown with the GAES TITAN DESERT by GARMIN. Since the first edition in 2006 have been developed for humanitarian action to the people of Morocco.

Repsol Foundation has been one of the more proactive humanitarian foundations in developing this type of humanitarian actions in Africa since its inception and has worked closely with the Titan Desert "for years. In 2009 taking advantage of the test step was completed by Tazenakht collaboration with the Repsol Foundation and its project Volver a Vivir which led to Morocco 300 chairs, crutches and tricycles for the physically disabled in the area of Erfoud.

In 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 starts a new charity project in addition to all that over the eight year history of the race have been made to give an opportunity for the people who welcome us.

Hand in hand GAES Foundation, Repsol Foundation and Garmin, in 2012 promoting a new project to combat the problems of hearing of the inhabitants of nearby towns to the passage of the race, with the ASSOCIATION SIJILMASSA POUR INTEGRATION DES SOURD-MUETS ARFOUD, located in Erfoud.

In recent years more than 1,000 hearing reviews have been done to the habitants of Morocco.

 



ACTION 2017: "Volver a oír para volver a vivir"
Actions 2006-2016

For all the editions of the race, we have made it a point to work with local suppliers, hire as many local people as possible and provision the camps with local food purchased in Morocco. In the end, more than sixty percent of the total budget stays in Morocco, generating wealth in the area through which the race passes.

Along with the competition itself, a series of actions have been promoted by the organisation and its participants which include donations of school and medical materials, financial contributions, and batches of sports equipment or sport clothing deposited with associations in the villages we pass through. In 2007 and 2008, a Moroccan team from the village of Ramlia participated in the race with the help of the race sponsors and the organisers, who donated all the sports equipment, bikes and registration fees for the cyclists.

In 2009, taking advantage of the passage of the race through Tazenakht, we collaborated with the Repsol Foundation and its To Live Again project, which brought to Morocco 300 wheelchairs, crutches and tricycles for the physically disabled in the Erfoud area. In the 2010 edition, Doctors Without Borders, as part of the Contador Specialized MSF team, sponsored by Alberto Contador and the Specialized bike shop, sold solidarity kilometres for the team members.

Our intention is to continue to grow this relationship and to be able to add our grain of sand to the development of a region that contributes so much to everything related to the race.

The humanitarian actions in Morocco revolving around the TITAN DESERT by GARMIN are of great importance to us and we will continue to give all our support to the projects that arise from it.

Since 2012, the project "Volver a Oír para Volver a Vivir" it is a reality thanks to Fundación Repsol, Gaes Solidaria and Garmin.
