Sponsoring & Corporate Volunteering: Company
They built houses, donated wells, funded the school. They planted trees, installed playgrounds, donated art. They offered us hours of work, field trips and computer assistance, brought us food, clothing and money. Without the support of many committed companies our first village would not exist. The possibilities to get involved as a company are unlimited, as long as the safety and well-being of our children are guaranteed. Do you also have ideas, programs or financial means to further the construction of our children’s villages?
Learning for Life: Interns
Have you just finished school or university and would you like to be involved in a humanitarian project for several months? Atlas Kinder is happy to welcome interns to enrich their daily life in the Children’s Village. Internships as part of your studies are also possible. Please send us your complete application today.
Valuable support behind the scenes : Volunteers
They initiate cooperations, write texts or help us with translations. They support our secretariat, plan events or organise excursions for our children. Without our volunteers, the work for Atlas Kinder would be difficult to manage.
Do you have special talents that you would like to contribute to the Atlas Kinder? You can support us directly by coming to the village or digitally from your home anywhere in the world. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
Connecting generations: Grandmothers
The “grandmothers” regularly visit our children and support our foster moms. Their voluntary commitment is a precious help, their presence an important psychological support in the village. Many of these grandmothers have come from abroad to settle in Morocco. In this way, they broaden the children’s horizons, but above all they offer them love. Do you live near Marrakech and want to become a grandmother? Then don’t hesitate to write to us.
Do you have any further questions?
