Volunteer in Morocco

Share this page

Four million people in Morocco live below the poverty line, three million of them in rural areas, yet many families living just above the poverty line also face severe inequalities in income distribution, health care, and living standards. In Morocco, the average years of schooling for a child is far below other countries in the region and even further below the global expected standards for children ages 5-16.

In Morocco, only 20% of girls have a secondary education compared with 30% of boys. Contribute to programs that encourage girls to fulfill their potential, while delivering public health solutions to improve overall well-being. Women undertake more than 7 times as much unpaid work than men. We’re working to empower women through education and support for economic activities.

Join CCS to volunteer in Morocco as we combat urban and rural poverty and its impact on the education of vulnerable children and girls and deliver public health campaigns to those that lack adequate health care.

CCS in Morocco has been working for nearly a decade as a leader in early childhood education with the support of our international volunteer base.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES IN RABAT

Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.

Child Development
CCS volunteers in Morocco greatly contribute to improving the quality of education that every child deserves. Primary schools and organizations that support vulnerable children are under resourced and understaffed. CCS volunteers assist teachers, conduct educational and recreational programming, teach English language skills, and provide children with much needed one-on-one attention.

Global Health
Morocco’s health care system is behind where it should be, especially in the rural areas. Through outreach, education, and care, you will provide much-needed support to vulnerable children and adults in low-income communities. In addition CCS leads multiple public health projects in Morocco including vision screening for children, oral health campaigns, and the promotion of hygiene in schools.

Girls' & Women’s Empowerment
Fostering economic opportunities for women creates financial independence and the leadership skills that build stronger communities. These Moroccan women are eager to receive your support and determined to transform themselves, their families, and ultimately the community at large.

I fight for the education of vulnerable women, children, and those with developmental disabilities to combat illiteracy and increase opportunities to continue formal schooling.

Growing up in a rural village of Morocco where many children didn’t have the opportunity to attend school, I see myself in many of the children volunteers work with. Very close to home, my mother is also illiterate; and I have seen the impacts of illiteracy on early mortality rates, high fecundity, malnutrition, and high infant mortality. Literacy and education is a key social issue in Morocco to improve the lives and futures of women and children. I was fortunate to earn a degree in Economics & Management and continued my work toward improving my community through the Peace Corps as the Safety & Security Manager, coming full circle from a turning point in my life after meeting a Peace Corps volunteer as a teenager.

I am proud to serve as a humanitarian and educator to promote peace and understanding across a broad range of cultures. As an international leader, my work with volunteers and with my community inspires me to do my part to create a world where every child has the opportunity to pursue an education, and to receive the compassion and love they deserve.
