Morocco Underage Maids
In this Aug. 2011 photo made available Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012 and provided by the INSAF association shows a meeting against the use of under-15 aged girls as domestic servant, with a banner reading in Arabic "No the work of young girls as domestic servants" in Imintanoute, southwest of Marrakech, Morocco. In a report issued Thursday, Human Rights Watch group followed up on its 2005 study that found how tens of thousands of girls under the age of 15 work as maids, often subject to abuse, with no access to education. The Moroccan government has said the number of minors involved in child labor has dropped by nearly 80 percent since 1999 thanks to public awareness campaigns and enforcement of existing laws.
