Volunteer Helping Women in Rabat, Morocco

Company : Moroccan Center for Arabic Studies
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 50 to 1000 £ Pound (UK)

Numerous women in Morocco suffer from illiteracy, poverty and unemployment, which negatively affects their social surroundings and also their children’s education.

Since 2005 when the National Initiative for Human Development (NIHD) was founded, the Moroccan government has been working hard to improve education and healthcare and promote work for women. MCAS aims to enable Moroccan women to improve literacy and develop professional skills. Volunteers can choose to work in Rabat or surrounding rural areas. 

Volunteers will work primarily in education but may also work sewing, teaching art, arranging sport and physical activity, teaching computer science or offering academic support for girls. If they possess the necessary skills, volunteers can also provide instruction in finance, management and other work-related activities in schools, high schools and universities in addition to providing moral and social support to female victims of domestic violence. 

Volunteers with a background in education can also provide training to local teaching staff in education and gender equality. These additional volunteer tasks depend on the duration of the volunteering period (for those staying for longer durations, there will be more opportunities to get involved in these activities).

Volunteers and interns who wish to participate in the Working With Women project should have at least a basic or intermediate level of French. We recommend this to ensure volunteers and interns have a positive experience as many of the women who volunteers work with do not speak English.

 

Requirements

Volunteers must be 18 years or older on the program’s start date and have at least a high school education. All volunteers must provide a criminal background check upon arrival in Morocco.

 

Language

Volunteers on the Working with Women project must have an intermediate level of French or Arabic while English is always welcome. Volunteers can take advantage of Arabic and French lessons offered exclusively to volunteers.

 

Start Dates & Duration

All programs begin on the first and third Mondays of each month. You can choose to volunteer for anywhere from one week to six months.
