Life Out of the Box Expands to a New Country

Life Out of the Box Expands to Morocco

Our trip to Europe was an eye opening experience for us. Each country we went to taught us something different and opened our eyes to new perspectives. We were inspired by the art, the people and the history that makes Europe such a fascinating place. Traveling teaches us many things that we wouldn’t otherwise know–it’s part of why we all do it in the first place. This time, our travels emphasized that just like the people in the US, people in Europe wanted to make the world a better place. We all do. Our time here gave us more than we ever expected and propelled us to make a big decision for the direction of Life Out of the Box.

We are expanding LOOTB into it’s fourth country alongside of Nicaragua, Guatemala and Mexico, but this time on a whole new continent: Northern Africa. Morocco, to be exact.

We couldn’t be more excited to learn about this new culture, bring you all some new beautiful products from artisans in Morocco and find out how we can make a difference. Throughout our travels in Europe, we had heard about numerous Non-Profit Organizations who were doing amazing work in Morocco as well as the beautiful products that Moroccan artisans were making there. We did a ton of research and in the end we wanted to go check everything out ourselves.

We are eager to see how we can give back to the children in Morocco and learn what their needs are. Over 4 million people live under the national poverty line in Morocco. In our eyes, every child in this world is equal and deserves the opportunity to have the tools needed to educate themselves and pursue their dreams.

We are excited to announce this big move for LOOTB because expanding the company into Northern Africa brings us one step closer to our dream that we set out to make a reality just over a year ago. We initially moved to Nicaragua to create a social venture that would eventually give back to children in various countries around the world. Now Life Out of the Box will be working with artisans and giving back to children in countries throughout Central America and Northern Africa.
