About Your Trip
On this adults-only VolunTour in Marrakesh and the Draa-Tafilalet region in Morocco, show your Heart to Serve with WorldVentures Foundation™ and various charitable organizations. Throughout your trip, you’ll help paint a Berber village school and give out school supplies to the children there. You’ll also spend time at an orphanage distributing clothing and blankets, and at another orphanage, you’ll help clean it and give out cookies and chocolate to the children.
VolunTours are professionally planned, guided trips that put volunteers to work beautifying communities, building infrastructure and brightening the lives of children. You will participate in a child-serving project as you become immersed in the culture.
