Volunteers on this program provide much-needed support and assistance to children and young adults at various childcare facilities for children with mental and physical disabilities in Rabat. Government and community support for children with disabilities in Morocco can be seriously lacking. As a result, most children with disabilities are destined for a life of poverty. This also puts incredible stress on the children's families.
There is always a high demand for volunteers on these projects, where duties mainly involve teaching the children English, organising and helping out with extra-curricular activities, as well as simply playing games with the children. The children who these facilities aims to support require a lot of care, attention and most importantly, companionship.
These projects are severely understaffed and underfunded, which is why they are in urgent need of volunteers. The children are always happy to see you and are very welcoming to our volunteers in Morocco. You truly are needed and appreciated at these projects.
Accomodation on this program is with local home-stay families, located close to the childcare center in Rabat. Become a Love Volunteer and join us in enchanting Morocco!
