What to Expect?
What do volunteers do? Volunteers work four to six hours a day with a Moroccan NGO devoted to promoting women’s rights in Morocco through advocacy, research and direct outreach to marginalized women. The organization touches upon many areas that affect Moroccan women, including domestic violence, elections, inheritance and land rights and reproductive health.
Volunteers support the small office staff by working on a variety of projects, for example collecting press materials and creating press releases; helping on web and IT issues; writing reports and funding proposals; and maintaining the organization’s library. For volunteers staying for longer periods, they may have the opportunity to work directly with poor women the organization is helping. However, this is dependent on the local need and the background and qualifications of each volunteer.
Requirements to participate:
At least an advanced level of Arabic or French.
The flexibility to participate in many different tasks depending on the ever-changing needs of the organization.
The creativity and initiative to work in an environment with limited resources.
