Resume:

The purpose of the EGD II project is to allow marginalized Moroccan teen girls to gain a voice within their communities. A voice that drives change to detrimental practices toward girls and women in Morocco. The project development objective is, to positively impact detrimental practices against Moroccan teen girls at the community level, such as, sexual harassment, forced dropping out of school, and forced early marriage. With these challenges in focus, we want to borrow the recommendations of the United Nations (UN) to plan a way forward. According to the UN Adolescent Girls Task Force, there are two key means to unleash girls’ potential: 1) Promote and empower adolescent girl leaders; and 2) Enhance Community Dialogue . Our project – Empowered Girls’ Dialogue II – will advance these twin goals and enable us to build bridges between generations and sexes, thereby creating positive change within local communities to improve the situation for marginalized girls.
