5 Project reviews of Off To Morocco

Project Details

Volunteer, intern, learn Arabic and French in Morocco with Off To Morocco.

- Who we are: Off To Morocco is a Moroccan local association that is created in 2017 by three passionate young Moroccans to help improve and provide adequate education to deprived Moroccans through its diverse educational programs and through driving volunteers who are looking for opportunities to volunteer in their own way in Morocco. Off to Morocco works closely with other local Moroccan associations, daycares, and NGOs in Rabat, the capital city of Morocco, Salé (the neighboring city) and Casablanca who share the same passion of providing adequate education to all. 

- What we do: With its give and take belief, Off To Morocco believes in education to all.  Our focus is education to underprivileged Moroccans, mainly children. We run teaching projects to children, women, and students. Through our various volunteering offers, we welcome international volunteers to help us achieve this noble mission of education to all. We also offer Arabic and French language lessons to our volunteers to help them adapt and communicate easily while in Morocco. Volunteers can choose more than one project to volunteer into and can choose the period that suits them to stay starting from one to twenty-four weeks. This platform is open to everyone who wishes to travel with a purpose. Anyone who wants to impact themselves and others.

- Where we work: Morocco (the full Arabic name is Al Mamlakah al Maghribiyah which translates into “The Western Kingdom”) is located on the North West coast of Africa and has ports in the North Atlantic Ocean as well as the Mediterranean Sea. It is the fourth most populous Arab country (after Algeria, Sudan, and Egypt) and shares the largest part of its border with Algeria to the East and Mauritania to the South. Morocco is divided into sixteen regions. Each region is further divided into provinces and prefectures. Despite the fact many people identify Marrakech as the major center of Morocco, the capital city is Rabat and its largest city is Casablanca. Marrakech is the major tourism hub for Morocco. The program is based in the capital of Morocco, Rabat, which is where orientation and general administration is carried out. Volunteer projects are located mainly in Rabat, Salé and Casablanca are secondary placements.

Morocco is a safe country. You are cautioned to make sure that you have your valuables kept safe, somewhere you can feel them at all times, especially when you are in crowded market places or nightclubs. Most tourists in Morocco never experience any trouble as long as they stay alert and use common sense. Our local staff during orientation will give you a guided tour on safety. They will also guide you on areas to stay away from. If you are ever unsure of anything just ask us and we will be happy to respond promptly. We recommend that you travel in a group or at least with one person.  However, during the day you are fine traveling alone once you know your way. Make sure to have all of the coordinators’ telephone number on you.  We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergencies.

It is expected that all volunteers have their own health insurance. Vaccinations are not typically required to enter Morocco, however, this can vary depending on your travel path. We, therefore, recommend carrying out independent research and talking to a travel doctor about the required vaccinations if you plan to travel before or after your volunteer program. You may choose to get vaccinated against some illnesses (please see our list below of recommended vaccinations). In addition, please carry with you preventive agents, such as mosquito repellents, as well as other medicines for headaches and stomachaches. On the off chance that you fall sick and need a doctor’s attention, our Morocco staff has access to an emergency medical service and will take you to the hospital if necessary. There are good and reputable hospitals where you can be treated. We recommend you consult a travel doctor before you travel, as they will also be able to advise you on what vaccinations you require, be sure to allow plenty of time to receive these vaccinations.

Recommended Vaccinations for Morocco:

Polio

Hepatitis A

Diphtheria/Tetanus

Typhoid

Hepatitis B


- Who are we looking for: We are looking for passionate volunteers who wish to travel with a purpose. Our platform is open to anyone who wants to impact themselves and others. Especially, passionate people who are looking for opportunities to volunteer in their own way in Morocco while leaving a lasting impact on our educational projects. 

- Why choose us: if your passion is education and if you care about helping underprivileged students, so are we. Off to Morocco will not only provide you with the opportunity to practice your passion for education and helping others but also will give you the chance to discover the beautiful country of Morocco by living with a hospitable local host family where you will experience the daily life of Moroccans and their delicious meals.

Social Impact

Morocco as an underdeveloped country has lower rates of education and higher rates of school dropoffs. These issues are common among underprivileged families in the suburbs of cities and in the countrysides where families can not afford to send their kids to school and the importance of education is not well understood by parents. To tackle these issues, Off to Morocco and other local NGOs are in need of skilled human capital. Off To Morocco as a social project is created to help provide the right education to underprivileged students and to find the right people who are willing to help the local NGOs and associations like itself that are in great need of these skilled human capital. 


Thanks to international volunteers that we were receiving for a couple of years, a number of Moroccan students are now able to speak English 
& French, women envolved in our programs gain language skills and capacities that allow them to improve their own and familial situation, parents involved are aware of the importance of their kids' education and their own, more assistance and attention are given by our volunteers to our special needs kids.
