I've been to Morocco twice now, both times with original volunteers and I want to encourage people who are thinking about volunteering abroad, who want to make a difference, go on excursions and make new friends then Morocco is for you!
The first time I went to Morocco I was completely alone, however original volunteers make it easy and simple for you to find travel buddies and get into contact with people who are there the same time as you. This really helped me out as I managed to meet two people at the airport through facebook first, who became really good friends whilst I was there.
You are met at the airport in Marrakech and from then on are never alone, always with other volunteers in groups or the coordinators who are all very friendly and helpful!
Rachid who runs the projects is always there for advice and help, and is incredibly friendly and welcoming, he really is such an asset to the project!
The projects are very varied, all focused on children but you can work in orphanages, teach, go to autism and down's syndrome homes, work with babies and feed the homeless, there is never a dull moment and its great for first time volunteers as you get to experience so many different things.
The accommodation you stay in is lovely and always very well kept and such a pleasure to stay in.
There is an average of two days off a week and the coordinators organise exciting excursions for you to go on for a very reasonable price, such as a trip to the waterfalls, and overnight trips to the Sahara desert camel trekking and to a traditional Berber house to learn the ways of Moroccan life and be taught some home cooking.
If you're looking for excitement, fun, a varied experience with lots to do and somewhere where you really think you can make a difference, then Morocco with original volunteers is for you!! I would recommend it to anybody in a heart beat and can honestly say both times I have been there have been really incredible. Good luck and have fun to all prospective volunteers!
