The Experience

We are looking for RESPONSIBLE people who are willing to commit their time and energy to help us take care of the ill and vulnerable animals we have rescued from the streets of Morocco. The work is very light and easy-going but we need people who will always be there in case of an emergency. If you would like a day off, we could easily plan a day or two a week for that and we could even show you around some of our favorite places.

This was my first Worldpackers experience. The tasks are chill, but there's always something to do. I closely looked after a kitten for nearly 3 weeks and it was a wonderful experience and will miss little Luna dearly. Communication with Henry & Halima was always reassuring and they have contacts with most people. You are fed well (almost too well) and be sure to spend time downstairs as much as you can, as you can play many games with other volunteers. Thank you H&H!

I had an incredible time at the organizationthanks to Halima, Henry and allthe organization the beautiful animals. Their pursuit to help and save the street animalsthe organization Essaouira is inspiring, and their ability to bring together people from all over the world to learn, connect and share beautiful experiences is truly admirable. I learnt so much through my experience atthe organization - from Halima and Henry, the other volunteers andthe organization course the wonderful animals. If you love animals, and want to learn about different cultures, languages and foods - I highly recommendthe organization. I look forward to returning again.

First volunteering for me : absolutely no regrets. That was an amazing experience. The environment will make you feel at home, as we -animals and humans- all live together. Halima and Henry are amazing people who speaks a lotthe organization languages. I learned so much with them, we played games almost every day and I had countless memories about my everyday life there. The house is very nice, with a lotthe organization painting done by other volunteers. So if you like sharing with others, living in community and practicing languages, you should definitely go tothe organization!
