people and places: Education support for girls in Morocco
This project is working with a charity that builds and runs girls’ boarding houses near secondary colleges and lycées in the High Atlas Mountains, providing the opportunity for selected girls from villages across the region to continue their education. The girls have a real need to develop their ability and confidence in English & French - conversation, composition and comprehension.
Volunteers will be welcomed with any of the following skills and experience: English teachers, French teachers, TEFL / EFL / TESL, teachers in all subjects who could work with 11-18 year olds in small groups, computer skills, life skills - particularly mentoring and supporting the girls in their studies and preparation for leaving school. Due to the girls' cultural background, we can place only female volunteers in this project.
The volunteer programme is based at Dar Asni - the first purpose-built boarding house with the capacity to provide a “home-away-from-home” for 36 girls. Latifa (the house mother) welcomes volunteers to help her in providing pastoral and educational support to the girls. The goal is to enable the girls to reach their potential - whether they choose to return to their villages, to continue with further education, or enter employment.
people and places is an award-winning social enterprise and non-profit company, matching individual volunteer skills and experience to specific project needs. We exercise unparalleled clarity about how and where each volunteer's money is spent. We put the right people in the right places - creating win-win relationships for volunteers and projects!
