International Youth Work in Casablanca 2019 | Morocco

We served an IJAB/Ministry of Foreign Affairs contract at the ACT to CHANGE conference on International Youth Work during November/December 2019. Aside from documenting the conference and its results interviews on 3 different youth projects were conducted on location in Casablanca, Essaouira and Tiznit.

We are desert lovers and decided to add a visit to Fort Bou Jerif in Southern Morocco , the Port to Sahara, again. This overlander relay/campement was founded by our friend Guy Dreumont in the early years of Dakar Rallye.

Guy had been the first medical doctor in Chief of the very first Raris to Dakar Rallye in 1978/79 on Peugeot 504 Break and had decided to move to Southern Morocco after selling Fort Bou Jerif and still dwells in Agadir. Time for a visit.

So we rented a car and started working in Casablanca at the conference ACT to CHANGE with 100 attendees from Egypt, Germany, Morocco and Tunesia.


is an old colonial Town with a lot of such achitecture and lively in the evenings with lots of bars and restaurants. The conference Hotel was located downtown close to the port.
