Open Doors Morocco is a partnership of one Moroccan Bedouin, Said Ahnana and one Morocco Loving American, Nancy Lauer. We go about tourism a little differently than the norm. We believe that enticing foreigners to vacation “in a bubble” apart from the culture of a place is selling the travelers and the host communities short. A suitcase of expensive souvenirs doesn’t compare to the personal transformation that comes from meaningful interaction with the personality of a place.
We believe in paying fair wages, marketable wages to workers in the tourism field. Read more about our ethics in a recent Sixnie and Salt article, Ethical Tourism: What It Is and Why Should You Care About It?
In short, our vision of authentic tourism is one where the lives of our foreign guests, as well as those of Moroccan Nationals, are enriched in meaningful ways.
