IMG_0897-180x180“I cannot believe it hasn’t even been two weeks since I arrived in Taroudannt. I have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness of all the people I have met here, and have been made to feel so utterly welcome since my very first day! Meeting the team at Centre Amane has been nothing short of an absolute joy, and I feel like I have learnt so much already about Moroccan culture and life here in Taroudannt.

Learning Darija and classic Arabic has been very challenging but a lot of fun! Having had absolutely no knowledge of either of these languages prior to my arrival, I am lucky that people have been so patient with me, helping me out as much as they can!

Working with the kids at the Centre has been a wonderful experience so far, and it is so clear how valuable the work of MCT and FAPE is to these families. I feel very lucky to be playing a small part in this partnership, and am really looking forward to continuing to get to know the children, the families and the volunteer team throughout the next 6 weeks
