CNDH launches a National Debate on the Protection of Children living in Difficult Conditions in Morocco

On the occasion of the World Children's Day, which is celebrated on November 20th of each year, the National Human Rights Council (CNDH), in partnership with the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Communication, is organizing an interactive meeting on "Children's Rights in Difficult Conditions in Morocco", on Friday 25 November 2022, at the Hassan Educational Complex in Casablanca, Morocco.

This meeting is part of the implementation of the CNDH action strategy based on the effectiveness of human rights. It aims to launch a national debate on the protection of children living in difficult conditions in Morocco and engage national advocacy to adapt the legal requirements to child rights international standards, including the law on child protection centers.

The movie "Ali Zawa" directed by Nabil Ayouch, will be projected and discussed at this meeting.

Institutional and associative stakeholders will discuss the legal situation of children placed in protection centers in Morocco and highlight the role of cinema in awareness-raising in Morocco.

Participants will also address problems related to children exposed to danger, violation, violence and sexual exploitation, by encouraging their involvement in decisions and allowing them to express their views on the draft law related to child protection centers.

Mrs. Amina Bouayach will visit an association working with children living in difficult conditions and hold an interactive meeting with children, in Casablanca, Morocco.
