PROJECT LOCATION:

Rabat, Morocco’s capital, rests along the shores of the Bouregreg River and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s known for landmarks that speak to its Islamic and French-colonial heritage, including the Kasbah of the Udayas. This Berber-era royal fort is surrounded by formal French-designed gardens and overlooks the ocean. The city’s iconic Hassan Tower, a 12th-century minaret, soars above the ruins of a mosque.

ARRIVAL & AIRPORT PICKUP:

After you have booked and confirmed your placement, please book your flights to arrive at Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca city. A member of staff from our local partner organization in Morocco will meet you on arrival at the airport and take you to the guest house which will be your base for volunteering and touring. This airport services numerous international carriers. Morocco has good connections to destinations throughout Europe, the Asia- Pacific region, USA and Africa.

ORIENTATION:

Orientation and Placement will be done the next day. The volunteer guest house or host family will be your base for volunteering while living in Morocco.

PROJECT DETAILS:

Go Volunteer Africa’s community development volunteer opportunities are for participants looking to volunteer in Morocco in teaching, childcare, medical work, sports development, women empowerment, environment conservation and more.

For volunteers interested in medical volunteer work, tasks can include helping with check ups and offering general assistance to patients. You could also work by helping train new staff or going into communities and schools and informing people about nutrition and healthy foods to eat. There is also a need for people to help promote conservation, recycling and sustainable living programs.

You can choose from a variety of community development volunteering programs in Morocco, including: public health, marine, teaching and sports or volunteering with children. By doing volunteer work in Morocco, you become part of ongoing efforts to support children, environment and community.

Morocco is a very tradition country, and like many places in Africa women are often seen as second class behind men. Women are often put of the fringes of society and there is a need to fill the gender divide and help women into education and employment. Over the past years a lot of work has been done by Go Volunteer Africa to help teach women new skills and offer an opportunity to do more with their lives. You can help train women with new skills – very rewarding.

Go Volunteer Africa gives you the ultimate journey of a lifetime, full of surprises and inspirations. Our superb breathtaking life-changing volunteer encounters will open your mind and heart and be reminded that our common humanity is more important than our individual differences. We invest in socio and economic development projects, wildlife and enrich the people that make up your thrilling expeditions and volunteer vacation awesome and memorable.

With our volunteer program in Morocco, we allow you to discover the wonders of this North African country, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore life in Morocco and schools, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
