Volunteer and explore Moroccan culture in the desert

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Drâa-Tafilalet region


The program is an opportunity for the participants to explore Moroccan culture in the desert, learn to cook Moroccan dishes, and take part in a pottery or theatre training. Cultural visits will be organised to places in South Morocco (oasis, desert, mountain, kasbah, river). An excursion to the Sahara Desert will be also organised in the end of December for the volunteers to celebrate the New Year in the Desert.

The group will take part in some voluntary activities and a pottery course. The volunteer tasks include painting and gardening in a local school. The participants will learn about the Moroccan artisan techniques of making pottery.

They will get knowledge about how to make pottery articles, from working and preparing the earth to decorating the articles. This activity doesn't require individual skills but it demands your motivation to overcome the difficulties. All the materials needed for this activity will be provided.

The volunteers will learn how to cook some delicious Moroccan food. They will also spend time and organize activities for 400 local children in Zagora.

Location: Zagora is a beautiful town in the south of Morocco, near the Algerian border. It is well known for its large desert. Zagora is about 750 km from Rabat and about 250 km in the south of Ouarzazate.
