Empowering Women for Democratic Participation (Morocco)

Maoc

Titre : Empowering Women for Democratic Participation (Morocco)

Pays : Maroc

Date : Date non précisée

Contexte
Morocco’s women have traditionally been marginalized from political, economic and social realms. The reality for women is such that legal rights are of little relevance to their lives. The youth suffers from a lack of opportunities regarding education, jobs and conditions to contribute their energies to further their rights and be active citizenry. In light of the Arab Spring there is a sense of urgency to promote development that both directly engages and benefits the majority of the population

Présentation
This project’s mission is to advance participatory democracy and to apply solutions to systemic barriers to sustainable human development. The first objective is to develop citizens’ agency and voice, especially of women, through personal empowerment, fostering change-agents who build environments that promote democracy and guarantee freedom. The second one is to promote decision-making through participatory action to support the implementation of developmental projects and social change.

Impact
HAF will deeply engage citizens, locally elected officials and youth. The first pathway is to develop citizens’ agency, especially of women, through personal empowerment, fostering change-agents who build environments that promote democracy and guarantee freedom. The second pathway is through participatory action to promote decision-making authority. The aim is to adapt and create methods of participatory democratic planning in order to support the implementation of development projects.

By advancing participatory democracy where communities actively strategize and apply solutions to systemic barriers and by employing agency-based empowerment to propel women’s and youth’s active participation in the economic, social and political spheres throughout Morocco, systemic poverty will be reduced. This will contribute towards developing community-led sustainable social, economic and political stability for all in Morocco.
