Life-changing experience!

The best volunteering experience I ever had. The house was amazing! 5🌟
The staff super helpful and friendly!
So recommendable if you want to live the whole #MorrocanExperience that for sure is going to change your life!
The first day that I arrived I was a bit confused because of the Medina. But when I got into the house, they received me with a good Morrocan tea, and a nice talk with all of the other volunteers.

After that week I was way more comfortable and I knew how the city worked. On my 3rd week I started a project, and the Coordinator Ali, helped me a lot in this process! He helped me to find a place, helped me with the people. And at the end of the day, we had such a success.
It is an amazing experience, they have a lot of programs where you can work, from journalism to child care, so that’s amazing. Because they give you the experience that you are looking for!
100% Recomendable!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Learn a little bit of French or Arabic before coming! It’s gonna be super helpful!

Orphanage

Had an amazing time working at the orphanage and meetin all the children. Ali and laila, were amazing in looking after us and always ensured we were safe and used our time in the best way. The programme helped me learn about different cultures and authentic morroco. Living in the accommodation has allowed me to make firends from all over the world and develop and connection. This experience has truly been a very heart touching experience and has opened my eyes to the many different ways of life and people

My Experience

It was an amazing experience working in the orphanage with special need children as well as interacting with the older youths. Leila and Ali were very helpful on suggesting things to do during our free time. On the weekend, I was able to visit places such as chefchaouen and Casablanca which topped it all off! I will definately reccomend my family and friends to volunteer with Volunteering Solution.

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.

The journey begins when you start thinking about it

When I began planning my trip to Morocco with my family and friends, I received a lot of confusing reactions: “You are crazy, what can you find in this country? Go to safer places, morocco is very dangerous” and These stereotypes made more scared each day closer to the departure date. My trip was becoming a nightmare: Am I going to be alone? Is someone going to murder me? Will I need a head-scarf? Are they going to respect me? Am I going to be sick?

But when I arrived in Morocco, the stereotypes were absolutely shattered. I had the opportunity to meet a Morocco man with his son in the plane and my coordinators Ali and Jihane and I quickly learned my first lesson of this trip: Don’t trust opinions from others that never have been in touch with the country you are visiting, because prejudice is the son of ignorance and racism.
At any place of the world, there are good and bad people, and certainly Morocco is no exception. But people in general are very friendly and inviting. I also found it as safe as my country. Different? Yes. Worse? Not in the slightest.

You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist (Indira Ghandi).

Our coordinators demonstrated extreme professionalism. They were gracious in delivering advise, orientation, helping us in case of trouble, and keeping track of their and your responsibilities. They applied a very human touch with us, supporting us when morale was down, paying a lot of attention if everybody was fine in case we were not able to resolve issues, and truly enjoying our company.

I chose not to stay with an official family of the program, but people who were with Morocco families during the volunteering program were really satisfied with their experience with them. In my case, I was at the Riad (guest house) of MCAS and I strongly believe it was an amazing place to spend time with and meet incredible people from different parts of the world. I created some of my best memories from this place. Facilities and furnishings were in perfect condition. The Riad was spacious, light, new and peaceful. It was also a great opportunity to practice English and other international languages with other volunteers and improve your skills, particularly oral production and comprehension.

My only wish was that housing accommodations could be more fluid. When the large guest house (Riad) empties in slow travel periods, some of the magic of meeting new people or being with international friends is lost.

Apart from that, as a touristy person, Morocco was not the top of the list as much as London or Paris. But Morocco is the most beautiful country on the list. The best sights including the Sahara Desert, Chefchaouen village, Marrakech, Fez, Hassan II Tower. There are a lot of stunning and secret places to discover. They take a lot care when it comes to tourism and you feel like a royalty.

Finally, I strongly believe it has been enriching discover Islam religion. I had never imagined a religion as peaceful as this one. It is very respectful when it comes to be relations between people and also very tolerant with other cultures and religions. Now, I comprehend why this religion is the second most practised in the world.

To conclude, Morocco is an amazing country where all its treasures could be perfectly discovered if you have a very open mind, a wild and independent soul, and high capacity to adapt yourself and enjoy different ways to live. If your personality fixes with these characteristics, Morocco is going to be the best experience of your life.

Childcare program - Rabat

Since the first day I arrived, I felt as if they really care for me. I got picked up by Ali at the airport, though I was supposed to arrive another day. He instantly brought me under in a host family in the medina which I really appreciated. My work journey at the orphanage was like a huge step towards my personal development. It made me realize how thankful some people are when they have nothing to lose. I don't have to talk about safety... redundant topic for me; I felt really safe at all hours, I guess you just have to open up to the locals. Thanks Volunteering Solutions for this experience.

An amazing experience and life in Morocco!

I really enjoyed the volunteering program at a nursery school in Rabat. Even there was a language barrier, children usually do not care about it and just try to talk to me. I wish I could speak Arabic or French, but we could have wonderful time of singing songs and playing games. I brought Origami paper which was good stuff to play with kids. I think they liked it! That was a small nursery school with wide range of children from 0 to 5 or 6 year-old. So I could have great time with pretty baby and powerful kids. Teachers there also cannot speak English, but they were so kind and nice to me. I really appreciate about it.
Life in Morocco was so amazing and exciting. I stayed at Volunteer staff house which is located in Medina. Then I could feel the real life of Moroccan style. There are so many shops in Medina, so I never got bored. I also visited Casablanca on holiday. I visited the famous mosque where I could see the inside. I could feel the slightly different city from Rabat. Ali, a coordinator in Rabat, was so nice and friendly. He always supported and cared about our life and volunteering program. There is another staff at accommodation, and she was also so kind. They introduced the place to visit or eat, and helped to adjust the Moroccan life. I was really impressed the cultural mixture of Islam and French.
Above all, I have spent there only for 1 week but it was precious experience. the volunteering program and life there were unforgettable to me.

What would you improve about this program?
Teachers and children can speak only Arabic and French, so making it difficult to communicate with them. It might be better we have the basic language skills (just greeting or numbers) in Arabic or French.

Great program, great location

The Morocco program was a very worthwhile experience as this country is an amalgamation of French, Arabic and African culture and heritage with plenty to offer. The program coordinator was able to provide a placement that suited my interests, take feedback well and made an effort to improve the experience at the volunteer placement. A good deal of support was provided in terms of living arrangements, organising self-guided tours and the overall friendliness of the host and local coordinator made for a smooth experience. Morocco itself has plenty to see and do so at no point was I bored or short of new places to visit.
