    UPDATE 04/02/22

    Dear volunteers,

    Good news: Now that Morocco has reopened its borders, we can continue to move forward with our Autism's Dunya project!

    It broke our hearts to leave the autism community for 2 years without any help, unfortunately, the health measures left us with no choice.
    It is TIME to support them again.
    These families URGENTLY need our help because they are not getting it anywhere else.
    Since the situation in the world with COVID-19 is still ongoing, this summer's project will be smaller than usual (but no less important!).

    The project will be held in Larache Morocco a beachside city.
    The project with the families takes place from the 6th to the 20th of August but we need volunteers to help us set up and wrap up the project, So we can receive volunteers from the 1st of August and they can stay until the 25th of August.
    During this time, we will provide you with accommodation and all meals for the day.
    Wi-Fi will be provided during working hours.

    NEW this year: we may have a way to fund your airfare or travel costs to Morocco.
    We will give you all the information on how to be eligible when you contact us!9

    Please note that we receive many requests for this project and that places are (unfortunately) limited due to the small size of the project this year.

    Volunteering hours will be Monday to Thursday from 10.00 to 17.00 (needless to say there is lunch break), Friday from 10.00 to 12.00, Saturday and Sunday are free.

    ***2023***
    Hello, my name is Hanan, I am Dutch with Moroccan roots living in Spain and I am married to Mohamad, who is Spanish and also has Moroccan background, and we have a young son called Yahya who is on the Autism Spectrum. Meeting therapists for my son inspired me to start a training program for parents of children with autism in Morocco. Our first two Autism early intervention parent training programs have been a success, and we hope next year will be even bigger and better!

    It will be held in Larache, Morocco from early July to - start of September 2023.
    Volunteering hours will be Monday to Thursday from 10.00 to 17.00, Friday from 10.00 to 12.00, Saturday and Sunday free
    We are in need of passionate, hard-working volunteers who have experience with the following:

    1. Personal assistants to organize admin. work and write reports
    2. Qualified professionals who are able to administer diagnoses (autism, etc.)
    3. Speech and language therapists
    3. Occupational therapists
    4. ABA therapists or background in ABA (min 3 years)
    5. Play therapists capable of teaching adults how to interact with their child during play
    6. Volunteers with a psychology degree to help assist the therapists
    7. A cook
    8. Translators (Moroccan Arabic to English)
    9. Individuals with Teachh background
    10. Social media/marketing manager


    If you think you can add any further skills to this program, please do not hesitate to get in contact!

    Why volunteer with us?

    Studies have shown that early intervention therapy for young children with autism is the most effective long term strategy to improve language ability, social interaction, and quality of life. Unfortunately, therapy can be very expensive in countries like Morocco and is only for one hour in a whole week. If parents don’t have the knowledge to reinforce what is learned in therapy at home, this precious time is lost. Our aim is to bridge this gap between therapists and families so that parents can have the tools to support and teach their young children with autism every day.

    We hope that we will be able to be preparing soon for our third year of our Early Intervention Parent Training Program for parents that have a young child with autism in Larache, Morocco.
    Here, global health professionals provide intensive therapy for the children while training parents in early intervention methods. We hope to create an educational network wherein families of young children with autism or other developmental disabilities can learn, then in turn educate and support others. The program comes free to all qualifying families and is entirely run on donations of time and money.

    As a volunteer, you will be able to meet people from all around the world, visit the beach, learn more about Moroccan culture and cuisine, and make a difference in a family’s life. Thank you!
