Empowering Girls and Young Women at Risk in Morocco is intended to be a comprehensive and practical guide to working with girls and young women at risk from a human rights based approach.
The International Human Rights Law Group are pleased to announce the publication of "Empowering Girls and Young Women at Risk in Morocco: A Resource Book on Sexual Abuse, Forced Labor, and Trafficking in Persons in Prostitution and Domestic Service", recently produced by the Morocco Field Office of the International Human Rights Law Group in collaboration with a Working Group of 13 local NGOs from diverse sites across Morocco.
Empowering Girls and Young Women at Risk in Morocco is the first edition of a Resource Book designed to serve as a tool for awareness-raising, direct service, and advocacy on behalf of girls and young women at risk of sexual abuse, forced labor and human trafficking in prostitution and domestic service in Morocco.

Elaborated to enhance the capacities of women’s rights NGOs and local development associations, this Resource Book also targets journalists, lawyers, social workers, researchers, and other actors interested in supporting the human rights of this vulnerable population.

It contains descriptions of the phenomenon of girls and young women at risk and case studies from a variety of sites across Morocco; a collection of news articles from the local press; a practical guide to support programs for girls and young women at risk from a human rights based approach, including fieldwork, outreach and communication strategies, psycho-social assistance, legal advice, and other practical assistance; the national legal framework; international human rights laws; human rights education sessions for girls and young women at risk and the larger public; analysis and strategy planning sessions for NGOs; and numerous appendices with additional resources such as Internet resources, a Directory of international NGOs, bibliographies, and practical fact-sheets and case forms.

We will be happy to send a copy of this Resource Book to all organizations working with women from the Maghreb - the Book is primarily in Arabic. Please just send us an e-mail with your address where you can receive packages.
