We believe that changing the world can only start by changing yourself. If you are not afraid of challenging experiences and stepping out of your comfort zone. And traveling, getting involved to people and projects from other places is one of the most paradigms breakers of all. If you are passionate about helping others and really want to be a change agent and contribute to the Global Sustainable Goals you are at the right place. -We are a small NGO based in southern Morocco who runs a project called "kids and family centre". since 2000 we stared hosting people from other countries through some social and traveling exchange platform , so we really like to meet people who are from different cultures... - If you want to share the life of local family in a region with year-round sunny weather, authentic Moroccan traditional food and fresh seasonal fruit bought locally , discover the mysteries of the desert, the souk, the Hammam and participate in local celebrations you are at the right place .People of all faiths and religions are welcome to come and join our family. All volunteers who are keen to make a difference in the children’s lives are welcome to come, no professional experience required.

Firstly I would like to thank to the Riad Sud Association for receiving us. There's a lot of things to do & children need us for learning in exchange of all the love they can give. But like everything has his dark side. You should know before going that there is no private room and the tours and excursion are not free. There's no problem because Morocco it's not an expensive countrie. Anyway it is an experience that you should not loose. Excepting those little expenses and not having a private room, I would recommend this trip. The host is an incredible person.

My experience at kids and family learning center was amazing!
Omar is super kind and welcoming, making sure that everything went well while at the association.
The same can be said of everybody else that is involved (Ali, Hassanya, Abdul, Hanane...), thank you!
The classes are also very rewarding, all the kids are super interested and willing to learn.
One should not expect European like conditions, but there's nothing missing and the stay is comfortable :)
I wish the best of luck to you guys on keeping a wonderful association that helps lots of kids and thanks again for everything!

It's a great experience for me! People were very nice to me. My host Omar were very kind and took me to his hometown. The scenery there was amazing!Thanks!At first, I thought I was going to teach Chinese or Chinese Painting there. But the students didn't understand what I said in English. Finally, I had to teach them English. It's kind of a challenge for me. But Iconquered it and my students they enjoyed it! There's something I didn't enjoy there :The conditions of the association was not as good as the other volunteers said. No private room, No French class for you, No bike, No laundry room……
