The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are organizing awareness and training days on the rights of children with disabilities. This initiative is part of the United Nations partnership for the rights of people with disabilities “Changing the perspective and promoting the approach based on human rights in the perception of disability in Morocco”.
These awareness-raising and training days aim to consolidate the knowledge of the various actors in the field of the rights of children with disabilities (ESH), to propose initiatives for the implementation of the national program of inclusive education, and master the appeal procedures with a view to better protection of ESH.
“These awareness and training days, which will target students, parents’ associations, education professionals and health professionals, will take place in two stages. A first workshop will take place in Rabat and the second on February in Casablanca, ”said the CNDH in a press release. And to add that “The program of these workshops will be animated in an interactive and participatory approach with techniques and tools adapted to the various forms of handicap. The activity will take place in two sessions. A first session dedicated to the concepts and key points of the principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the national redress mechanism for children; and a second devoted to the general principles and the independent protection mechanism of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ”.
It should be noted that the opening session will be held this Monday, in Rabat, in the presence of Amina Bouayach, President of the CNDH, and Maryam Bigdeli, the WHO representative in Morocco.
