Sable D’or Association offers a new program during Easter week in ErRachidia, Morocco, which gives its participants the possibility to help others while they get to visit new places and learn from a different culture.
The volunteers will stay either at an apartment (shared with all the other volunteers) or at a school, there will be two different groups, one to do activities with kids and the “painting” group.
In the Activities with kids, the volunteers will prepare activities for kids aged between 6 and 11 (you can find the work Schedule below). The activities will consist mainly of games, arts and crafts, workshops, etc. In this Project we want to focus on dental hygiene, that is why we should try to come up with activities that will help the kids learn more about their mouths and teeth, how to take care of them, how to brush correctly, etc.
The “Painting” Project consists in painting and decorating the school giving it a new look which will motivate the girls and boys who will study there for many hours in the future, always having in mind their dental health.
The school is in the town.
Pick up dates:
Each Project will have an assigned pick up date at Marrakech´s airport, those details will be sent with the “Project information” you will receive once you have been accepted into the Project. If you don´t arrive on the established date, we will send you all the necessary information and addresses so that you can make it there on your own.
The price for this pick up service is 10 € (you pay these once you get there). There will only be a pick up if there is a minimum of 10 volunteers.
Once you arrive to Errachidia:
When you arrive, you will rest for a while and then we will have a meeting so that we can all introduce ourselves, we will go over the norms and the functioning of the projects and we will visit the school in which we are going to work at.
Throughout the Project we will do different cultural activities so that you can personally discover moroccan culture. We will have a traditional music night, we will go to dinner with a moroccan family, will have roundtables on cultural issues, etc.
6 hour daily work Schedule:
Each group will work on their Project for three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon.
Trip to the desert:
On the second and third of April we will go out on a trip to be able to enjoy of a fabulous night out in the desert. For this we will ride camels through the dunes and Deep into the desert and we will spend the night with the local nomads in authentic “jaimas” (large tents for the desert).
PS: Although very recommended this trip is optional, those volunteers who don´t want to go on it can stay at the school for these days.
At this party the volunteers will receive diplomas thanking them for their participation.
