Description:

The aim of this volunteer project is to promote social inclusion through sport, create social ties and instill positive values through collective sports. The volunteers will work with children and youth from the town of Kenitra in northern Morocco. They will use sport as a tool to encourage socialization and improve self-esteem among the youngsters.

The international volunteers, along with local participants, will organize football, basketball, handball and other games for children and youth in Kenitra. Special attention will be given to including those who have difficulties integrating into society. Also some round tables will be organised to discuss issues that concern children and youth. The local community is very friendly and are willing to support the volunteers in achieving the project's goal.

Duration of the project: The volunteer placements are from 2 to 12 months.

Benefits:

Participating in an international volunteer project can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend several monthsin 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.
