Description:

This trekking and intercultural exchange program provides a unique opportunity for discovering the former imperial city of Marrakech, trekking in the High Atlas mountains and doing some solidarity work with the local population in the mountains. Participants will get to know the Moroccan culture, while visiting Rabat and Marrakech not only as tourists, but to enjoy a true cultural immersion experience, participating in different activities. The main aim of the project is to promote cultural understanding.

In the first week, the volunteers will stay in Rabat, in a host family and will volunteer teaching languages. After that, they will move to the mountains, where they will live in a private house, rented for the project. There will be guided trekking in the Marrakech mountains. The group will also do some social volunteering. The work with local population in the mountains may include school renovation, playing with kids, cleaning a water stream, distribution of clothes or other necessities such us books, educational materials, food, etc.

Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
