Many women in Morocco suffer from poverty, illiteracy and unemployment, affecting their social standing and, in turn, their children’s education. Since a national directive in 2005, the Moroccan government has been working hard to improve women’s education and health, and is eager to promote income-generating activities for women. However, volunteers are still required to help to deliver these goals.
The Women’s Education project aims to enable local Moroccan women to improve their literacy levels in English, French and Arabic, and to provide them with professional development opportunities. You’ll volunteer in local organisations with local women and young girls. You’ll focus mostly on education and teaching English, and sometimes French.
Other tasks can sometimes include running cooking classes, sewing, computer training, offering academic support and occasional childcare. These tasks are dependent on your program duration and language ability, as longer term volunteers who can communicate in French or Arabic are more likely to be able to do them effectively.
Please note, volunteers must have an intermediate level of French and/or Arabic to participate.Apply now
