HIND IN HAND (MOR-30)


Type: Children, Education - Country: Morocco

Brief description and main aims

The aim of this project is to provide free scholar support and linguistic reinforcement to children and young people currently attending school or university. In Morocco’s public schools, the deliverance of language classes is compromised by many factors such as crowded classrooms and lack of trained teacher due to an overall low education level especially when it comes to English. Private summer lessons are of course available but too expansive for most families. This project offers the most disadvantaged students the opportunity to achieve a higher academic level.

Cultural Exposure

The children the volunteers will teach come from families with low economic resources. Therefore, the volunteers will be able to observe and appreciate their everyday life habits and culture through practical and social involvement and feel like they are actually making a change for these kids as they will pass on important skills for their future on a personal and academic perspective. Moreover, by working with national volunteers, they will have the chance to get involved in the Moroccan community not only at the youth center but also outside of work.
