Humanity & Inclusion in Morocco
Humanity & Inclusion’s began working in Morocco in 1993, promoting the social inclusion of the most vulnerable people and to improve their living conditions by advancing their rights and ensuring their needs are taken into account.
According to a National Disability Survey, one in four households is affected by disability.
Though Morocco’s transition towards democracy has gained considerable momentum since 2011, much progress towards equality for people with disabilities has yet to be made.
Our Current Work
Our team in Morocco is composed of 20 staff members who work diligently to:
- Provide rehabilitation services
- Improve living conditions for migrants
- Ensure social, economic, and educational Inclusion of people with disabilities
In partnership with the Ministry of Health, Humanity & Inclusion improves access to rights and quality of life for people with disabilities and their families and promotes their self-reliance by providing occupational therapy. The organization provides technical, financial and organizational support to the Ministry of Health.
Humanity & Inclusion works to improve living conditions and reduce the vulnerability of migrants from Ouled Ziane camp in Casablanca during the winter period.
Social, Economic, and Educational Inclusion
In the city of Salé and region of Souss-Massa-Drâa, Humanity & Inclusion promotes the access of adults and children with disabilities to local educational, health, vocational, and administration systems. In Salé, awareness campaigns target the general public on inclusive education and sponsors debates and events on child education.
Organizations in the region also receive guidance on setting up support and career advisory services for people with disabilities.
