"Kids here often have to work..." Morocco Local Custom Tip by lois_lane

Morocco Local Customs: 297 reviews and 362 photos


Kids here often have to work to help the family make ends meet. If you want to take a picture of a child at work, at least try to make their lives a little easier by giving them a little something. Use your discretion however, as constantly giving money and pens to children encourages school skipping, and some parents even keep their kids home from school to get pens and candy and small change from tourists.
