About

Four million people in Morocco live below the poverty line, three million of them in rural areas, yet many families living just above the poverty line also face severe inequalities in income distribution, health care, and living standards. In Morocco, the average years of schooling for a child is far below other countries in the region and even further below the global expected standards for children ages 5-16.

In Morocco, only 20% of girls have a secondary education compared with 30% of boys. Contribute to programs that encourage girls to fulfill their potential, while delivering public health solutions to improve overall well-being. Women undertake more than 7 times as much unpaid work than men. We’re working to empower women through education and support for economic activities.

Fantastic Program

Cross Cultural Solutions is an incredible way to immerse yourself in a different culture while simultaneously giving back in a meaningful way! Living with fellow volunteers and fellow Moroccans in a "homebase" provided a great, casual way to learn about Moroccan people, cooking, culture, etc, while making new friends!

I loved the program, staff, and volunteering in Rabat!

This was an amazing experience I will never forget. They really help you adjust and feel prepared, so I wasn't nervous arriving in Morocco. The staff was extraordinary and super friendly. Of course, you still should do your own research no matter where you go, along with the resources they give you. But this program was great!
