Resume:

Our project has its overarching goal to empower marginalized teen girls in Morocco to mobilize and advocate for change at the national level for teen girls’ rights on issues such as sexual harassment, forced dropping out of school, and forced early marriage. This project is grounded by two specific objectives: (1). To build capacity for marginalized teen girls in Morocco to effectively advocate for their rights by activating Girl Leaders through empowerment workshops and skills training in lobbying and advocacy, leading to the development of a Teen Girl Bill of Rights. Includes facilitating structures for teen girls to access role models and allies with key policy stakeholders. And (2). To facilitate a strong grassroots girls’ rights movement which mobilizes Girl Leaders to demand change through garnering support from other teen girls, local and regional communities as well as at the national level to uphold and to reform girls’ rights. The project will last 12 months.
