Volunteering in Morocco

Travel in Morocco for a life-changing experience !

Participate in volunteer work in the heart of the Moroccan central High Atlas Mountains, in a village located in the Valley of Aït Bouguemez known as Happy Valley.

 

This rural area of 30 square kilometres has about 15,000 inhabitants living in 27 villages.

 

The Valley of Aït Bouguemez is about 260 kilometres away from Marrakech. Other important cities nearby are Azilal and Beni Mellal.


Summers are dry with some few thunderstorms. Rainfall is more important during winter. Snow falls generally from October to the end of April.
