Lucy Harwood said that volunteering in Marrakech, Morocco with Original Volunteers had been an ‘amazing’ time, and that she found the children at the Orphanage where she volunteered to be ‘loving, and excited to learn’…

She said that ‘despite language barriers friendships were quickly formed’, and felt that it is ‘truly satisfying to know that any extra time that you have for these children will make a real difference in their future ambitions and expectations’.

She described looking after the orphans in Morocco as a ‘massive task’, but was full of praise for the organisers at the Orphanage saying that they do an ‘excellent job’.

Not only does she feel that the children gain a lot from the presence of volunteers, but she feels that the volunteers have a lot to gain from the experience as well. Lucy felt that ‘as long as you have ideas and are keen to get involved in sports, teaching, or chatting with the children then I think you will have a great time’..

She described Marrakech as a ‘greatly exciting city’ and added that everyone that she met was ‘so much fun’, and was full of praise for Original Volunteers coordinators in Marrakech saying that she found them to be ‘really helpful’.
