I am trying to locate Fred C. Thomas Jr who was first PC Director in Rabat/Morocco. When I last visited him in the late 70s or early 80s he was the UNDP Representative in Port au Prince/Haiti.

I have been invited to join the PC in Morocco, leaving this fall '04. I will be teaching ESL as well as working as a Youth Volunteer. I would appreciate any advice as to what kind of teaching materials would be useful to bring with me, as well as the feasability of a laptop in rural Morocco. Also, it sounds as though pants are discouraged for women in rural areas. Is this true? Thanks for any insights - all are welcome! Susan

I am a PCV in Mali approaching the end of my service. I am considering extending to a 3rd year and would love to be in Morocco, possibly in an urban environment. I currently work in the Health/HIV sector but I am open to a different experience and have a teaching background as well.
Any suggetions on possible 3rd year positions and how to get my request for an extension approved by your country director?

All help is welcome. Thank, Francesca

I am a PhD student in Cultural Anthropology at the Univeristy of Florida. I amm looking for Peace Corps volunteers serving in Morocco. In Fall of 2006, I plan to begin dissertation research on the role of the Argan tree in the economic and cultural lives of indigenous women in southern Morocco. I am particularly interested in the cooperatives established for processing Argan seeds.

At the moment, I am studying Arabic at ALIF in Fez. When the program ends on July 15, I plan to travel south in search of a research site and local contacts. Can you provide information on individuals or groups conducting projects related to the environment in Morocco? It does not necessarily need to relate to the Argan tree.

Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings from a volunteer out of Marrakech. It is 2005 now and I served in the years 1976-1979. My job was to manage the Foyer Cheshire, a polio childrens Home near the Mosque Koutoubia. Like many volunteers have stated it was a very important time of my life. Following my service in Morocco I married and went to West Africa to help with Leprosy/polio programs. Next I taught school in Los Angeles so my new Canadian wife could meet my family. Next a move to Canada to begin twenty yrs. of special needs work experience coordination for a school district on Vancouver Island. I could not be happier or more grateful to Morocco for getting me starting in a service career. bye for now . . . .bob bellmore
