Working with Children and Young People, Morocco

Volunteers will work with Moroccan youngsters, teaching and assisting them to learn crucial life skills that we often take for granted. For example, volunteers may teach languages, computer skills and mathematics. Volunteers will also be involved in organizing different “fun” activities such as music, theatre and outdoor activities. This project will give volunteers an insight into the life of Moroccan children.

What to Expect?

Participants are accommodated with host families within close proximity of the volunteer program. Previous volunteers have given glowing accounts of their time with their host families. Please note that a private room is not guaranteed.

Host families provide "half board": breakfast and dinner. Lunch is not included; however, eateries including international and Moroccan restaurants as well as fast food outlets, pizzerias and cafes are within a short distance of most placements. Moroccan cuisine is colourful, sweet, spicy and rich. The national dish is couscous – finely ground semolina usually served with vegetables and beef or lamb or chicken. Some of the more delicate traditional dishes include Bastilla, filo dough stuffed with almonds, eggs and chicken, seasoned with parsley and onions and topped with cinnamon and icing sugar. The Bastilla is the masterpiece of Moroccan cuisine and like many Moroccan dishes combines sweet and salty flavours.

The universal drink is mint tea, made with green tea, fresh mint and a lot of sugar. There are delicious sweets and desserts, using such local ingredients as honey, almonds, sesame seeds and dates. Mescouta, for instance, are date cookies and m'hencha, rich almond pastries.
