TYPES OF PROGRAMMES
- North South On projects in Morocco, the intercultural exchange element is considered much more important than the practical work. Project tasks can be liable to change at the last minute, usually by the town council or municipality running the project. Volunteers should be prepared for this and should be ready to be flexible. Working hours are usually about 5 hours in the morning, and the rest of the time is free for cultural activities.
