Sobre el programa

On this project, volunteers/interns will work in local organizations in Rabat, Casablanca, or Salé, with local women and young girls. You will focus primarily on education and teaching during your time in Morocco. However, other tasks can sometimes include sewing, cooking, teaching art, arranging sport and activities, teaching French and/or English, computer training, sessions on women health, offering academic support for girls, and occasional childcare.
If you have relevant skills, then you can also provide training in finance, management, income-generating trade activities, health, communication, women’s rights, and single parenting. Additionally, if you have a background in business management you can assist in creating and managing online databases to showcase and sell items made by women in their associations. If you have a background in education, you can also provide training to local teaching staff in best practice education and gender equality. These additional volunteer tasks are dependent on your program duration, as longer-term volunteers with confidence in communicating in French and/or Arabic will have more opportunities to get involved in these activities, provided they have relevant training.

- 30%: to cover the administrative and coordination work of the program. This also includes volunteers' pick up. 

Recogida en el aeropuerto Sale Airport

After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Rabat International Airport (RBA). Your airport pick-up is included in your Program Fee.
When you arrive, you will be greeted at the airport by a member of the local team and transferred to your accommodation in Rabat or Sale (location will depend on proximity to your specific placement).

If you are traveling in Morocco prior to your volunteer program, we can arrange for you to be picked up at the Rabat Ville Train Station in Rabat on the day before your program orientation.

Alojamiento

Our volunteers are accommodated in a homestay where you will live with a local family and other volunteers. These families receive money from your program fee for support, food, and board. It is exciting to stay with a family, as this is an opportunity to learn the Moroccan way of life, meet local people, eat local food, speak the local language (Darija: the Moroccan Arabic dialect) and engage in local customs and traditions. Volunteers may share a room with other volunteers but in many homestays, volunteers have their own rooms. Volunteers are recommended to bring their towel and toiletries. It is important to note that Moroccan homes have a shared living environment in which Sdaders (Moroccan couches) are used as a sitting and dining room.
WiFi is available in all our homestays in Rabat. You can also get connected to the internet if you purchase a local SIM card with data for an unlocked mobile phone.

Comida y bebida

Influenced by African, Arab, Moorish and Berber cuisines, Moroccan cooking blends Mediterranean fruits and vegetables with spices, typically imported. A typical Moroccan meal begins with a series of hot and/or cold salads, followed by a tagine (Moroccan stew) and bread is eaten with every meal. Lamb or chicken dishes are common, as couscous topped with meat and vegetables. The consumption of pork and alcohol are prohibited, as per Muslim dietary restrictions and drinking mint tea is a daily tradition. 
Our volunteers in Morocco are served three meals per day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). Running tap water is drinkable and bottled water is readily available in Morocco. Volunteers should budget approximately US$5 per week for mineral water (2 liters per day) if they want to stick to it. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know when you apply for the program so we can make arrangements for you.

sobre la organización

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

Conoce a tu anfitrión(a)

- 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.
