El enfoque principal de estos campamentos solidarios es apoyar el desarrollo sostenible y positivo de los niños de entornos vulnerables o de bajos ingresos en la ciudad de Ouarzazate, Marruecos. Los campamentos solidarios han demostrado ser una experiencia muy enriquecedora tanto para los voluntarios como para los niños, ya que brindan una gran oportunidad para el intercambio cultural y para formar vínculos fuertes y duraderos entre los voluntarios y los niños. Estos campamentos son fundamentales en el refuerzo de valores como la solidaridad o la amistad entre los jóvenes y niños de estas zonas vulnerables de Ouarzazate, y también en su empoderamiento, ya que les proporciona valiosas habilidades para la vida (a través de talleres o clases). 

  • La principal tarea de los voluntarios es ayudar a construir un mejor entorno para los niños y jóvenes que asisten al centro, mediante la realización de actividades educativas y de ocio, el primero enfocado en apoyar a los niños a través de su educación escolar y el segundo enfocado al intercambio cultural y solidario. Algunas de las actividades con las que colaboran nuestros voluntarios son la enseñanza de idiomas (inglés, español y francés), expresión artística (dibujo o música), educación física, juegos didácticos u otros talleres diseñados por voluntarios.

Además, los voluntarios pueden colaborar en el mantenimiento de las áreas en las que se encuentran los niños, para que se sientan lo más cómodos posible.


Las siguientes actividades se organizan con la colaboración de personal local y voluntarios:

  • Talleres de enseñanza de español, francés e inglés.
  • educación física
  • Dibujo, musica
  • Otros talleres diseñados por voluntarios

Typical day

Our volunteers will work in the Ouarzazate area of Morocco, working on Weekdays (Monday through Friday) from 9:00 to 13:00. Weekends are free for volunteers to go discover everything Morocco has to offer them!

Free-time activities

Ouarzazate, the city you shall be staying in, is a magical place; constantly used by Hollywood as a filming spot due to its impressing landscapes, Ouarzazate also has a lot of culture, having a lot of historic sites and influences from many different groups within Morocco, as it is an important trading route between the North and South of Morocco. Some of the things that you can do during your stay in Ouarzazate are learning Arabic and then practising it at the city's Souks, visit the city's beautiful and historic Kasbahs (you cannot miss Kasbah Taourit!) , visit the desert, visit the mysterious Oasis near the city, and much more. 

Additionally, you could go discover Marrakech, an attractive city filled with gardens, mosques, markets, and friendly locals; or Fez, one of Morocco's first imperial cities, rich in culture, tradition, and history.
