We also organize environmental work camps as well as workshops of gardening and painting in public spaces in Morocco.


Our mission is to contribute to the fight against exclusion, illiteracy, openness to the others, and the embodiment of the tolerance spirit. Our goal is achieve a fruitful cultural exchange that enshrines friendship and peace between foreign teacher and Moroccan pupils and students. We also promote population mobility and the growth of the international spirit through innovation and creativity.


CVW’s most important activity is organizing international short term voluntary projects (work camps) in Morocco and sending volunteers to projects abroad. In addition, CVW coordinates long term voluntary projects of 1 to 12 months. 

CVW also organizes and participates in seminars and trainings and offers Volunteering opportunities for asylum seekers and immigrants living in Morocco.


There are various ways how to participate. CVW work camp is a big opportunity to be part of new family.Volunteer work camps are made for people who have plenty of enthusiasm and initiative to work in a rural community area of Morocco , where volunteers from different countries can meet, live, work, learn and exchange their ideas with local people focusing on current environmental conservation issues (e.g. global warming, cultural heritage, social work, awareness program, rural and community development).

  Why should you volunteer with CVW ?

One of the greatest benefits of volunteering with CVW is being able to spend an extended period of time in Casablanca - Morocco with a professional team.

It's a truly unique learning experience that will see you interacting with new cultures, trying out loads of awesome food, speaking new languages and meeting new people. 

As a volunteer you will get a glimpse of the local culture, allowing you to become a part of CVW family, rather than a simple tourist who does not know anything about the reality of our city.

Casablanca is a city with a large population in the country of Morocco which is located in the continent of Africa.


Only 5 to 6 hours  of Volunteering per day! So let's discover Casablanca!! 


Hassan II Mosque


The construction of this magnificent mosque took five years. 6,000 traditional Moroccan artisans worked on this masterpiece of intricate mosaics, stone and marble floors and columns, sculpted plaster moldings, carved and painted wood ceilings. It's the largest mosque in Africa, with room for more than 100,000 worshipers. Non-Muslims are not allowed to visit the inside space, but there's plenty to marvel at on the outside, and official tours do allow you to access certain parts.


Shopping / Casablanca's Medina


Median means old-walled part of town and the local Medina is  a great place to just get lost in as you explore the shops in little nooks and crannies. It offers a nice contrast to the wide streets and modern, dilapidated architecture that marks the rest of Casablanca. You can pick up some good bargains here on authentic wares and crafts. Also check out the Marche Central in the center of town for wonderful displays of food, spices and fish. It takes place daily along the Boulevard Muhammad V, which is Casablanca's busiest shopping street.


Visit a Hammam

You have to try a steam bath and scrub in a traditional hammam when you visit Morocco, so why not in Casablanca. Recommended places for a good scrub down include: Solidarite Feminine (an amazing organization that runs Hammams and also provides services to unmarried women and their children) and Les Bains Ziani. 


Parc de La Ligue Arab 

A huge garden with avenues lined with tall palm trees, ficus, arcades, pergolas and flower beds. It is Casa's biggest open space. It's a good place for games and walks, has a choice of small cafés and the Yasmina amusement park.

The Corniche

Sometimes referred to as the "South Beach of Morocco", or the "Blackpool of Morocco", the Corniche is  a boardwalk lined with restaurants and nightclubs. It's here where local folks go to relax and have fun. Take a stroll down the Corniche if you've spent time inland and want to enjoy the sea breeze. It's a little out of the city center, so you'll need a cab. If it's hot, nip into one of the swimming pools owned by beach clubs and hotels along here.
