The main focus of these solidarity camps is to support the sustainable and positive development of children from vulnerable or low-income backgrounds in the city of Ouarzazate, Morocco. The solidarity camps have proven to be a very enriching experience for both volunteers and children, providing a great opportunity for cultural exchange and forming strong and lasting bonds between volunteers and children. These camps are fundamental in reinforcing values such as solidarity or friendship among the youth and children of these vulnerable areas of Ouarzazate, and also in their empowerment, as it provides them with valuable life skills (through workshops or classes). 

  • The main task of the volunteers is to help build a better environment for the children and young people attending the center, by carrying out educational and leisure activities, the former focused on supporting the children through their school education and the latter focused on cultural and solidarity exchange. Some of the activities with which our volunteers collaborate are language teaching (English, Spanish and French), artistic expression (drawing or music), physical education, didactic games or other workshops designed by volunteers.

In addition, volunteers can collaborate in the maintenance of the areas where the children are located, so that they feel as comfortable as possible.

The following activities are organized with the collaboration of local staff and volunteers:

  • Spanish, French and English teaching workshops.
  • Physical education
  • Drawing, music
  • Other workshops designed by volunteers

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.
