MOROCCO

Immerse yourself in Muslim culture and work side-by-side with Moroccan people to bolster important resources in rural areas while also forging cross-cultural bridges to dismantle dangerous stereotypes and promote understanding, respect, and compassion.

WHY MOROCCO?

Because you want to experience Muslim culture where it’s not the oppressed minority, but the thriving majority.

Because you want to fight for compassion and understanding towards Muslims in your community, based on your first-hand experience volunteering alongside them in Morocco.

Because you want to shed light on an often-misunderstood culture and correct erroneous misconceptions that lead to xenophobia and hate crimes.

Because you want to improve the lives and opportunities of Muslims at home and abroad.

Our Goals

All communities, regardless of location, should have access to basic resources to fulfill human rights and needs. In Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, many rural communities lie beyond the reach of urban-based social service institutions. You’ll fill in these gaps by working alongside our partner organizations on the ground to increase literacy and educational access, improve health through sports and nutrition, and bolster technological infrastructure and training.

Your Role

By channelling your passionate energy and creativity into working side-by-side with Moroccan people to better their communities, you’ll not only make a difference on the ground, but you’ll also create powerful ripple effects as you share your experience with your home community. Through your work, you can counter dangerous stereotypes and reconstruct conceptions of Muslims around the world.

About Morocco

Morocco is an African gateway between Europe and the Middle East, both geographically and culturally. Here, where Muslims form the majority of the population, you will experience proud, unabashed Moroccan culture. You will fully immerse yourself in the environment of a welcoming, safe country where Islam is the norm.

OUR SERVICE INITIATIVES

null

BOLSTER TECHNOLOGICAL INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRAINING

Technology is the greatest equalizer for advancement for those with the knowledge and ability to use it. AUA partner communities lack access to this important resource, and with it, the ability to foster communication, gain knowledge, and procure resources. un-Ambassadors help implement technology solutions that address community needs, provide hands-on computer training to students, and improve computer systems in underserved schools.

null

INCREASE LITERACY AND ACCESS TO EDUCATION

Education offers essential opportunities for children to better their lives, and in turn, as they grow into adulthood, the lives of their children as well as their broader communities. un-Ambassadors work in Muslim communities to help change a child’s (and their family’s) life better by teaching and tutoring in Reading, Writing, and English as a Second Language.

null

IMPROVE HEALTH THROUGH SPORTS AND NUTRITION

Children need access to healthy nutrition and physical activity to thrive, yet so many of our partner communities offer these resources. un-Ambassadors have been invited to help fill these gaps by offering sports camps and clinics, building and providing recreational equipment, and designing and implementing nutrition education programming.
