Volunteer in Morocco


Teaching foreign languages to Moroccan children and youth
Rabat       2 - 12 months

Volunteer project: The aim of this project is to provide free educational support and linguistic reinforcement to children and young people currently attending school or university. In Morocco’s public schools, the deliverance of language classes is compromised by many factors such as crowded classrooms and lack of trained teachers due to an overall low education level especially when it comes to English. Private summer lessons are of course available but too expansive for most families. This project offers the most disadvantaged students the opportunity to achieve a higher academic level.

The volunteers will teach one or two foreign languages (English / French / Spanish / Italian / German) to children and young people. Volunteers' main tasks include teaching, organizing activities and preparing lessons. Besides the language classes, the volunteers and the students will also participate in theatre, seminars, excursions and cultural activities.

Sport, art and educational activities for deaf children

Volunteer project: The volunteers in this project will provide school support and will organize sports and artistic activities for deaf children in Casablanca.
The center hosts around 76 deaf children, from 4 to 20 years old. The building is linked with the one of a public school. It was a government initiative to decide that this space would be allocated for deaf children schooling. Common spaces such as the playground are shared with the kids of the public school which encourages social integration of the kids with special needs. The children study from 9am to 3pm in 7 classrooms with a maximum of 16 students per classroom. Summer holidays are in July and August.

The center organizes leisure activities and offers support to the teachers for language classes and artistic and sports activities (basketball, football, karate...).

Location: Casablanca, in Arabic Dar El Baida, is the biggest city in Morocco and actually in the Magheb region. It is the economic and business center of Morocco. Casablanca is one of the most important cities in Africa, demographically and economically, being one of the largest financial centers in the continent. Its port is one of the largest artificial ports in the world and the primary naval base of the Moroccan Navy.

Completed in 1993 after many years in construction, the Hassan II Mosque is among Africa's largest, with one of the world's tallest minarets to boot. It really is one of the jewels of Morocco, as it is built on the seafront and its minaret is equipped with a laser that beams toward Mecca. What makes it even more special is the fact that it is one of the few mosques allowing non-Muslims visitors into its halls.

Casablanca’s central market is small and manageable. White-walled stalls with green clay tile roofs dotted with foliage are dreamed Instagram material. You will find any kind of produce, nuts and dates, and argan oil - the traditional Moroccan elixir for most everything. Linger long enough and eventually you will see the vendors line up for the call to prayer, and then join them for a quick tagine lunch.

The Aïn-Diab coast, the seaside annex of the city, is a traditional evening meeting point for locals, especially on weekends. You can find plenty of trendy restaurants and popular pubs; some of them have been there since the 30’s and offer seawater swimming pools.

The international volunteers will work as a team with local volunteers, therefore they will be able to observe and discover not only the immigrants’ way of life but also Moroccans’ habits and culture though practical and social involvement. This kind of project is usually very rewarding on a personal level for the volunteers because if their involvement is genuine they will quickly feel they are making a real change in the lives of the refugees whose only chance to get access to a better education is this type of program.

Volunteer tasks:
• Non-formal teaching of French, English, basic Math for the youngest, etc.
• Take part and/or organize sport activities and recreation programs.
