Brief overview

As a volunteer in Rabat, Morocco, you’ll quickly notice the number of street children around the city. However, what won’t be as obvious, are the underlying sociocultural causes for this pervasive issue. In Morocco, it is illegal to have children out of wedlock. When an unmarried woman becomes pregnant, it’s not uncommon for her to give birth in unhygienic conditions rather than risking the social and legal repercussions of giving birth out of wedlock in a hospital. Giving birth in such conditions is not only unsafe for the mother, it is considered incredibly high risk for the newborn child as well. Many of these children end up on the street and a startlingly high number of them develop cerebral palsy.

A few things you should know:

We're a mission-oriented nonprofit and your fees cover the expenses of your experience. Therefore, your fees may well be tax deductible.

Our track record virtually ensures that you'll have a great experience. This means that you'll return home safe, healthy, satisfied that you made a difference, and invigorated by your connection to a new culture. A 99.5% satisfaction rate kind of speaks for itself, right?

A CCS journey is an experience that's been shaped and improved upon by over 18 years of operation, and 30,000 volunteer adventures. We've kinda got this thing figured out.
