Rabat – The association Don’t Touch My Child, as part of its mission to raise awareness of the dangers of pedophilia, has launched the first guide for the care of victims of pedophilia in Morocco.
The guide, released Saturday, is available in Arabic, French, and Amazigh. It provides a training tool to combat pedophilia and offers accurate information, enabling families with children who have experienced sexual abuse to better control the situation.
The association has also launched a training program aimed towards community actors wishing to use these tools to effectively combat child abuse and pedophilia in Morocco.
These trainings, initiated in partnership with the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH), will begin next week in the Casablanca-Settat region and via video conference for wider dissemination throughout the Kingdom.
The association explained that the fight against this phenomenon is above all a matter of prevention and awareness. Preparing social members and integrating legal reforms will assist in putting an end to the prejudices and social stigmatization of sexually abused minors.
Since 2004, the association Don’t Touch My Child has been working on the protection of childred, the preservation of their rights, and the fight against any form of abuse, particularly sexual assault. Its work involves representing victims in the courts, seeking reintegration opportunities, and organizing awareness campaigns in coordination with all relevant actors.
