Tens of thousands of young Moroccan girls are exploited as “little maids” and denied the right to an education. Thanks to the efforts of a group of 34 Moroccan NGOs, including INSAF, a new law came into force on 2nd October 2018 setting the minimum age for entry into domestic work at 18 years.

Since 2017, the Government of Monaco has been supporting a return to school programme for these young girls, specifically in the Marrakech – Safi region, one of the poorest areas in the country.
