Although not essential, proficiency in French and or Arabic / Darija would be an advantage in being able to communicate with the members of the centre as these are the main working languages.
Our volunteer placements are tailored to suit each individual’s strengths and interests as much as possible therefore will be designed in collaboration with the volunteer. We offer various project support with the primary focus being working with children from the social and community centre Fondation Amane.

Why a cost? As we are a small organisation reliant on a network of volunteers, we are unfortunately unable to fund our volunteers during their stay. We therefore ask for volunteers to cover their costs during their time in Morocco. However, we aim to keep the cost as low as possible for the volunteer and endeavor to offer support and advice on fundraising if needed.
Why start with two months? From our experience and feedback from former volunteers, it takes time to settle into a new community. We want you to benefit from this learning experience as much as you are giving. For this reason, we have found that 2-months is the optimal time for volunteers to complete their mutual goals and projects with our centre. Please note your anticipated length of stay on your application form and a member of the team will be happy to discuss this further with you.
