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.
As a Women’s Education volunteer, you’ll focus primarily on teaching English, and sometimes French. Learning English is a skill that gives local women immense confidence and helps them to get jobs in industries like tourism.
You can also help to teach skills in sewing and computer training, offer general academic support for younger girls and occasionally assist with childcare. These 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
