PMGY volunteer in Morocco participants are lucky enough to be based in the medieval coastal city of Rabat. Relatively undiscovered, those who do venture there are in for a right treat.
Morocco’s capital is a gem of a city that combines the old with the new: a place where Moroccan history spectacularly collides with modern life. Unlike the hustle and bustle of other Moroccan cities, in Rabat, you are left to go about your business – and to watch everyone else go about theirs in peace. Being blissfully ignored on the streets gives you space and time to discover the hidden depths of this fascinating city.
Participants generally volunteer on a Monday-Friday basis and the weekends are free to relax or travel further afield. As our volunteers will testify, the wider travel opportunities are extremely important to the whole experience and it is something we certainly recommend you get involved in. Our local team are able to arrange activities, transportation and accommodation but please note this is usually an independent experience outside of the core programme.
