Care&community project in Morocco

TRANSLATION:
This summer I had the opportunity to spend 2 weeks in Rabat, the capital of Morocco and it has probably been the best experience of my life, thanks to Proyects Abroad. Before my trip you can talk to the Projecta Abroad staff from both my country, Spain both from there. Both helped me in my preparation of the trip and in everything I needed. Once there, I stayed in a Moroccan family with 2 other volunteers, the family was lovely! We live in the Medina, the oldest part, it was crazy people, smells and streets. They treated us great and we did not miss anything, they even took us to visit some places with them. During the day, we went to an association of children from broken families and at risk of social exclusion. There, we played with the children and did work like painting or hygiene workshops. The children received us from the first moment with a smile on their face and made us feel welcome and loved. They were children who had so much love to give and receive ... they did not stop giving hugs and kisses! We taught them things of our culture and they taught us things of theirs, but above all they taught us to appreciate what we have and what a simple hug can make a difference in someone's life, I, especially connected with the smallest I was 3 years old and we were inseparable those 2 weeks, I will never forget her !! The staff of Projects Abroad could not be better the truth ... they treated us great, they taught us many things about Morocco ... They were one of the group! And about the other volunteers ... they were the best. There were Americans, Italians, from India, Pakistan, Egypt, Kenya, England, Switzerland ... And we all connected from the beginning and we became very good friends, we laughed a lot together and they made the experience much better. In short, those 2 weeks I learned many things about different cultures, about life and about myself: what I really would like to do when I grow up. All this was possible thanks to Projects Abroad and its excellent organization Thank you!

Dear Celia, we are glad to read you had such a wonderful experience in Morocco. It's great to see everything you are capable of doing and learning as a volunteer in a developing country, even if it's just for a couple of weeks, isn't it? Thanks for sharing!

My experience with Projects Abroad

Projects Abroad me dio la posibilidad de vivir una experiencia inigualable en Rabat (Marruecos). A través de la organización, pasé dos semanas viviendo con una familia marroquí que me aceptó en su casa con gran hospitalidad y cariño. Durante esas dos semanas estuve yendo a trabajar a un centro comunitario para niños en el que organizaba junto a otros voluntarios actividades y juegos con los pequeños y ayudábamos en tareas de mantenimiento y reforma del centro. Durante estas doss semanas aprendí muchísimo y tuve contacto con gente de todos los lugares del mundo: Marruecos, Pakistán, Canadá, Francia, Austria, Estados Unidos… Puedo decir sin ninguna duda que fue una experiencia que no solo me sirvió para conocer lo que hay ahí fuera y abrir mis horizontes, sino también para conocerme a mi misma.
Cabe destacar también el excelente servicio del personal de Projects Abroad que se ocupó en todo momento de hacer mi estancia lo más satisfactoria posible, tanto antes, como durante. Me sentí muy arropada tanto por el personal que trabajaba en la sede en España, que me dio su atención para responder a todas mis dudas, como con el personal que trabajaba en Marruecos.
Ojalá volver algún día a ver las bulliciosas calles de la Medina, oler las especias, probar las frutas que vendían por los puestos callejeros, comer cuscus y tajine, bailar al son de la música árabe y rodearme de la vitalidad de los niños.
