In Morocco, the gap between rural and urban areas is one of the main obstacles for the country’s development. We note that poverty largely affects people living in rural areas.
Some rural areas are cruelly lacking in infrastructure such as access to drinking water, healthcare centres, electricity and public transport; the roads are in poor condition and schools are located many kilometres from residential areas.
This means that children have to walk tens of kilometres each day in difficult conditions on dangerous roads and in bad weather. All of these factors exacerbate the problem of non-attendance of children at school, and encourages school dropouts, which is on the rise in rural regions.
In Morocco, it is almost commonplace to see children working. Even though the number has dropped over the last few years, it remains too high. In reality, this scourge affects 69,000 children . Children find themselves forced to do gruelling work without any regulations for up to 32 hours a week. This is detrimental to their growth and development as they are deprived of their right to an education, which robs them of any chance of getting out of poverty.
