Morocco

Country Info

CARE began work in Morocco in 2007 as part of the National Initiative for Human Development launched in 2005 by King Mohammed VI. The initiative’s objective is to reduce inequity in Morocco through action in three areas: increased access to basic services, such as health, education, culture, public services, and transport; promotion of income-generating activities; and socio-economic development assistance for the most vulnerable.

We build the capacity of local partners and contribute to the political development of the country through this initiative, which is implemented through partnerships between the state and local and international organizations.

CARE Morocco pays special attention to youth and disadvantaged rural and peri-urban groups as severe inequity between urban and rural populations remains a problem.
