HI began working in Morocco in 1993 and is one of the few international NGOs to have signed a headquarters agreement with the Moroccan Ministry for Cooperation and Foreign Affairs (1999). For over 20 years, HI has supported the development of a strong network of disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) by building their capacities for self-advocacy and action. Since 2011, in a context of reform, we have started to work more closely with the authorities to support the development and implementation of inclusive public policies. We have steadily expanded our partnerships to include other CSOs in order to promote inclusion and address the needs of other vulnerable people such as women victims of discrimination, and migrants.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, HI has continued to help the world’s most vulnerable people. We have adapted our interventions in more than 45 countries.
