Home  /  Events  /  Current Page

Come and join us for a fun day trek in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco and work with the teachers and children of our pre-school in the village of El borj. . The fundraising trek is in the stunning Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco.  We are seeking volunteers during the October half term holiday for a minimum of  5-7days. Flights can be on Saturday or Sunday to the following weekend.  The trek takes you on an easy to walk 35k trip to the source of the River Oum R’bia where a traditional Moroccan meal will be waiting for you. We set off early morning and take a mini bus to a certain spot then walk approx. 7 k to a lake and have our breakfast in a traditional Berber tent then set off for the bulk of the walk which takes us till late afternoon. The mini bus stays with us just ahead all day so anyone who is feeling tired can have a rest or if anyone needs more water or first aid they can be sure that it is available.  

We already have some people who are coming so why not join them

 Flights are available to Marrakesh, Fes and Rabat from Stansted, LGW and Luton airports. You will be picked up from the airport and accommodation will be with a local family – You pay for your flights, food, accommodation, transport and translator services. Flights are around £100 to £150 return  Further costs are split between the volunteers and depends on how many. As a rough estimate it works out around £15 – £20 per person per day

Work in the pre-school is either helping the teachers with teacher training, Working with the children or any practical DIY i.e. painting etc.  We have done Frist aid and women’s rights seminars in the past. It does not matter what skill you feel you can bring. If you have a heart to reach out to those less fortunate than yourself and are able to give some of your time then we would like to hear from you.
