This summer I will be travelling to Morocco to volunteer with children at an orphanage in Rabat for two weeks. I will be volunteering with 'Plan My Gap Year' who I traveled with to Romania in 2014!
PMGY collaborate with an orphanage in Rabat that
is open all year round and home to over 100 people.
The children at the orphanage range from babies to
teenagers. Some of the people at the orphanage have
physical and special needs and ages can range up to
mid 20s and early 30s. These include Down Syndrome,
Autism, and very high functioning disabled children. A
lot of help is needed supporting special needs children.
PMGY volunteers also work with a couple of kindergartens in Rabat. Children at the kindergarten are usually aged between 4 and 6 years old. These kindergartens can be severely underprivileged and under resourced with many of the children coming from deprived families.
Whilst volunteering, my role will involve supporting and assisting at the orphanage and kindergartens in Rabat. My role will include teaching, feeding, playing and providing general support to the children.
I would greatly appreciate any donations!
