Program overview

Together with the team in Morocco, Love Volunteers’ offer a variety of placements that include working with children, teaching English, French or Spanish, as well as working with women’s groups in this fascinating North African country, a place with a long, varied history and hospitable people.

Volunteering in Morocco brings both challenges and rewards. Besides caring for children and community projects, volunteers are required for teaching projects where their pupils – from poor backgrounds – in many cases have learning difficulties. Without the help that volunteers provide, their prospects would be far more limited. A volunteers’ willingness to share and ability to be proactive in their role makes them a valuable addition to any classroom. Enriching the lives of others is what volunteering is about.

Lying in Africa’s northwest corner, across the Gibraltar Straits from Spain, Morocco has its own very distinct Arabic culture. With coastline on the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean, it lies between Algeria and the Western Sahara. The population of Morocco is a little over 32 million.

Volunteers from all backgrounds have the opportunity to make a great contribution in Morocco. By volunteering, one gets to savour a different culture and to form bonds with people who genuinely need help and support. Volunteering in Morocco, besides being culturally stimulating, also provides an excellent opportunity to improve one’s French and learn some Arabic.
