Morocco is such an attractive travel destination due to its cultural, ethnic, and geographical richness on one side and its safety, good infrastructure and openness towards the West on the other side. Throughout history, Morocco has been the gateway into Africa.
Elements of Cultural Exchange in Morocco Program
- To experience the intersection of Islamic, African, Indigenous and Western cultures within a safe and open framework.
- To experience traditional Moroccan food and personal connections in a family home stay.
- To get to know Moroccan people and culture
- To experience the unique, vibrant street life of historic medinas in Rabat, Asilah, Chefchaouen and Fes.
- To enjoy the rich variety of Moroccan landscape and connect with nature.
- To share insights that arise from broadened intercultural perspectives with travel peers.
Throughout the program our program leaders give cross-cultural orientations on issues such as the family homestay or how to be respectful while taking pictures of people or special places. For many Moroccans the standards of living may be very different than what participants are used to, so displays of wealth such as jewelry and technological gadgets are discouraged throughout the program.
Participants are encouraged, supported and expected to make a genuine effort to learn more about the people and culture of the host community
