Our Story

Even before launching Open Doors Morocco we recognized the disparity between the area tourism revenues and the salaries of the workers in the field. We created an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for building a desert bivouac to employ and fairly pay locals. The creation of the bivouac supports the PEACE vision of Open Doors Morocco:

  • Partner with local suppliers and cooperatives that behave ethically.
  • Empower locals by offering a fair exchange for their expertise and knowledge about their country.
  • Arrange unforgettable experiences for our foreign guests.
  • Convey the unique and compelling personality of Morocco. 
  • Explore opportunities for meaningful connections between guests, hosts, and other local entities.
