“Moroccan women have the right to live a decent life just like men, without being raped, or suffering violence that prevents them from being fully involved in the country’s political, economic, and social life. We ought to work towards this end and change this reality; by doing so, we’ll secure freedom and dignity for every woman, and build a healthier society.”- Amina Azatraoui, women’s rights activist
DSH also organizes a second youth empowerment program that runs alongside RISE called THRIVE, a program for students aged 15-24 who attend Agadir’s vocational school to build their capacities and equip them with concrete employment and civic skills to become competitive players in the job market and enhance their job security. THRIVE consists of 100 students, and approximately 40 of them are women.
