Trip Leader

Wedged between the Atlantic Ocean and Sahara Desert in North Africa, Morocco is known for its blend of Berber, Arabic and French cultural influences. It is rich in culture and beautiful topography – from the coastline to the High Atlas Mountains to the Sahara Desert. We work with local partners to serve the 15% living below the poverty line or ostracized within a country with high disparity. Soles4Souls started traveling to Morocco in 2018.

This trip is available for ages 10 years and older. Those under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult. Price does not include domestic or international airfare.
