Charity is something I am really passionate about and I have been given the amazing opportunity to volunteer in a childcare centre in Morocco over the summer. I want to do more with my time and helping children seems like a great place to start
“Morocco has a young population – the median age being 27. In addition, poverty rates in Morocco are worryingly high, with around 15% of the population living in absolute poverty. These two issues combined with the fact the government-sponsored education doesn’t start until the age of 7, have created a real challenge for families to provide their children with adequate emotional, educational and physical stimulation.
Poorer families typically require both parents to work full-time in order to sustain their household and so children are often neglected. Comprehensive primary learning is paramount to a child’s future educational success. The day-care centres that we support play in an integral role in providing essential childcare support to disadvantaged families.”
I am beyond excited and determined to help others but sadly I need some help funding my trip. I would be so grateful for any contribution and feel free to ask my any questions about the project.
