Under the NGO Support Volunteer Program, participants are placed with local NGOs working towards the upliftment of the society and the downtrodden in Rabat. NGOs focus on many areas of work including human rights, child issues, women rights, education, skilled learning, strengthening the government accountability, etc.

Today NGOs in Morocco are playing a vital role to strengthen community living and bridge the gap between a common man and the government. Volunteers looking for a great and affordable volunteer program in Morocco can consider joining the NGO support program in and around Rabat. This is a great volunteer work opportunity for gap year travelers who are looking to make a difference in society.
