In celebration of International Women’s Day, the Sahrawi province Aousserd in the  Dakhla-Oued Ed-Dahab region honored the accomplishments of women in several developmental sectors, under the banner of the “National Initiative for Human Development: An Engine for the Advancement of Women’s Status.”


A ceremony recognized the efforts of impactful women from the region who successfully managed workshops sponsored by the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH), such as i income-generating projects aimed at securing employment opportunities.


The ceremony began with a statement in which Aousserd’s governor highlighted women as a key component in the success of the INDH workshops, adding that their contribution is in line with the King Mohammed VI’s directives to make Moroccan women at the heart of development policies.


The governor’s speech was followed by the presentation of a report highlighting the most important INDH achievements for women in the region.

In solidarity with many countries around the world, Morocco celebrates International Women’s Day as an opportunity to“reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.”
