OFFER OF MISSIONS (or internship) IN MOROCCO (2018)
YanAnga aims to promote intercultural exchanges and international solidarity in France, Morocco and most broadly all over Europe. In order to reach its goals, our structure organizes all kinds of activities which could encourage closeness between peoples, carries out local and international development projects, and works for solidarity tourism. This type of fair and eco-friendly tourism, which assumes that each person is a travel, contributes to durably improve the living conditions of the host populations.
YanAnga at the service of Sustainable Development Goals 4 – 5 and 10
Intervention zone: Center of Morocco
Volunteers’ work sites:
The missions will simultaneously take place in the villages of Inchaden, Arbaa Ait Ahmed, Ouijjane, Tamesloht, Asguer, Aghbalo and Tafingoult… There will be 2 or 3 volunteers per village/town and one visit will be organized to every village/town.
- Mission head “socio-educational project manager (tutoring course)”.
- Mission head “manager of edutainment activities”.
- Mission head “project coordinator”
- Contributing to the stabilization of vulnerable populations in the region who risk to migrate by combatting early school-leaving and social inequalities. In order to attain this objective, we will conduct foreign language courses (French, English, Spanish, etc.) and edutainment activities, in partnership with the educational institutions and the cultural centers of the villages and the city where the project will take place. This objective is very significant since the Moroccan education system operates inefficiently, particularly when it comes to the teaching of modern foreign languages.
- Preserving and promoting the traditional techniques along with the local cultural and natural heritages, consolidating the technical skills of young girls and encouraging the commercialization of several natural resources, such as argan oil. All of it will be carried out thanks to different activities open only to women and children (girls and boys).
- The « IFOLANGA » sewing workshops will take place in three villages in Southern Morocco (Inchaden – Ouijjane and Aghbalou) more precisely in the Souss-Massa and Marrakech-Safi regions. Concretely, it would consist in buying sewing cases, sewing machines, and all the needed material for these workshops. The women of these villages will also be able to strengthen their professional and technical skills through trainings that we will implement. In concrete terms, each workshop will make 4 sewing machines and 1 serger/overlock machine available for the participants as well as basic sewing training (beginner and high level) along with marketing/business trainings that will be provided by two trainees, volunteers or civic service one of which will be a graduate/student of a sewing school and the second one will be a graduate/student of a business school. Other theme trainings will be provided by clothing, fashion accessories and jewellery designers.
