Morocco is such an appealing 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, the Strait of Gibraltar has been the gateway for Europeans into Africa.
It is easy to come off as a rich, arrogant foreigner in Morocco if participants are not conscious of their attitude in the country. Our pre-departure material informs participants about issues such as moderate clothing that is respectful to the host culture.
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.
