Droit et Justice

Droit et Justice

Droit et Justice is a Moroccan NGO which is dedicated to improving the judicial system and promoting the rule of Law in Morocco. In 2014 Droit et Justice organised the Combatting Underage Marriage through Legal Awareness (CUMLA) project; a series of sessions that educated young girls and boys aged 9 – 17, as well as parents, lawyers, law enforcement, educators, and religious leaders on child marriage.

Droit et Justice also works to establish a network of stakeholders, such as community members, parents, psychologists, doctors, officials, lawyers, and nurses, who are concerned about this problem in order to handle child marriage cases which may require legal assistance. To date they have educated over 500 women, including 250 underage girls.
