Volunteering in Morocco

The whole point of me going to Morocco was to do some volunteer work.¬†Amidst all of the traveling and having a ball, there was some actual work wedged in between. Volunteer work is one of my passions. I don’t think I could function without it. I’ve spent most of the past few years giving up …
