Make a REAL difference in Morocco with Women's Empowerment Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
The mission of this program is to support the women of Morocco who have suffered greatly in society. This program will highlight to volunteers the plight of women’s rights in Morocco. Living in a male-dominated society, many women in Morocco are illiterate and lack the opportunities to develop this (and other) fundamental skills. The project aims to educate girls and young women who are otherwise deprived of education and training. Volunteers teach women and girls English and provide skill-oriented training by assisting in workshops. Ultimately this helps to improve the women’s standard of living, their self-confidence, and encourages them to be independent and generate an income. This is a hugely rewarding program, and input from volunteers can be clearly seen translated into real life-changing skills for the women this project supports.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential care and support to vulnerable women
- Improve the future prospects of disadvantaged women through education and skills
- Improve the self-confidence of women and the ability for them to take charge of their lives
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help us provide support to some of Morocco's most marginalized and vulnerable women. While this challenging project does not require participants to have a background in the fields of social work, counselling and/or Women’s studies, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
