HomeStays Morocco Tighza Valley

How you can help

  • Plant a tree and improve the local environment (this is seasonal and only available to larger groups as arrangements must be made with forestry commission)
  • Bring out and distribute clothes and shoes to local poor families
  • Drink tea or eat a meal at a local home and the money goes direct to them
  • Don your decorating clothes and help a local family who lack the resources or skills to repair or decorate a room in their home (roofs often need repair following heavy rain) (contributions are requested from volunteers to pay for materials)
  • Help out repairing or replacing irrigation ditches which are often damaged following heavy rain or flooding
  • Muck in on a community project like replacing the irrigation channels, fording the river, repairing the road which gets damaged by the weather. Past projects include building a water tower and building the hamam
  • Contribute to dental or medical expenses. Few Berbers have enough money to pay for treatment even in the Ministry of health hospitals and even fewer have health insurance
  • Washable nappies, nappy wraps or covering pants are in demand and we have no supply (ask your friends if they have any leftovers)
  • Using the village hamam (this is available to prebooked groups)

We also welcome those with practical skills, medical or complimentary therapy skills and experience.


Homestays and Riad Kasbah Oliver work with Baraka in Tighza. We need funding for medical operations, replacing a 4km section of water supply pipe and ongoing replacement of irrigation channels. Your donations make a massive difference to this small mountain community.All donations will be match funded by a private donor.
