Marruecos / Cooperación al desarrollo
Childcare volunteers work with special needs children and children from disadvantaged neighborhoods through organizing and engaging in activities to entertain the children and enable them to develop cognitive abilities.
Volunteers design activities for the children each day and these activities include physical development activities (music and movement, toys and games) language and literature, arts and craft (painting and drawing), and theatre. The aim is for volunteers to provide these underprivileged children with new enriching and exciting activities.
Volunteering activities won’t run more than 4-5 hours per day, 5 days a week, for the most dedicated volunteers. Those students wishing to blend volunteering with their Arabic studies generally can have 2 hours of volunteering in a single day, with select days off to focus on their Arabic studies.
