Dar Ouirgane volunteer

When i rang on the door bell of dar ouirgane i was greeted by a rush of girls, kisses on each cheek and a tumult of ca va? It was raining heavily and they hurried me inside. Such a loving, eager and enthusiastic welcome and really that is my overiding impression of Dar Ouirgane. The girls desire to learn has overcome any language difficulties we have had in trying new games and activities.

During our walks into the beautiful surrounding moutains i have been able to teach them some traditional children english songs as we march along. We have had yoga and kick boxing sessions on the roof, football in the garden, lessons in french and english on school subjects, baking, painting and a weekly quiz testing their language and mathematic skills. On the 27th of march we had a mini adventure to okcamedom with the girls from Dar Asni, everybody absolutely loved it.

After the holidays i hope to arrange a play in french based on a traditional fairytale, maybe snow white! I love it here.
