Activities with children

 

Elbassma Association has been organizing leisure activities since 2008 for all those boys and girls in the region of Errachidia who do not have the opportunity to access to educating, sure and enriching resources.

Our projects are constantly evolving and improving. Our first goal is to make children enjoy, learn and be happy. To do that, we propose a methodology based on respect for children and education for life, in which talents are fed and awakens interest in discovering the world.

This project would not be possible without the work of the volunteers who each year carry out activities both inside and outside the classroom: painting, crafts, theatre, games, gymkhanas…

They are organized in groups of 2 or 3 volunteers and each team will be responsible for a group of children. In each group there will be a translator for volunteers to communicate with children with greater ease.

 

  • What type of accommodation is there? The accommodation will depend on the chosen project, for example, if you choose the Easter project, the accommodation will be in shelters and hotels, and if your project is the summer one then you will be in a school with basic facilities adapted to accommodate the volunteers (kitchen, showers, dining room, mat-tresses and cushions ... you have to bring your sheets from home).
  • What type of food is there? A Moroccan cook will prepare typical dishes of the country's gastronomy. All volunteers will be responsible for washing their dishes and keeping their spaces, clothes, etc. clean.
  • When to apply? The inscription will close the 31st of May or when all the vacancies have been filled.
  • How much does the project cost? In Errachidia municipality the cost is 360 euros that includes three meals per day, accommodation in a hotel, project materials, transportation with a local during all the stay and pick up in Marrakech airport. In Errachidia city center the price is 240 euros that includes three meals per day, accommodation, project materials and the pick up in Marrakech airport. It is not included in the price: plane ticket, the return from Errachidia to the airport, the excursions and the travel insurance. P.S: you can apply to one of our grants that can cover up to 100% of the stay cost.
  • Why are some projects more expensive than others: We have some projects that are in the center of the city of Errachidia and there are others that are in the outskirts, the projects that are on the outskirts are difficult to get accommodation for, therefore, we need to stay in a hotel and a transport that we take to where we are going to work. However, the projects that are in the city are all close by, so in the first case the cost of the project is higher than in the second one.
  • How many hours are you going to work during the stay? You are going to work 6 hours: 3 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon.
These projects have scholarships, to apply for them you have to mention it in the registration.
