ABOUT ZAKARIA EL HAMEL
Zakaria El Hamel, the son of a human rights activist, was born in Morocco during one of the darkest periods in the country’s history. Growing up, he saw firsthand the abuses perpetrated against Moroccan citizens at the hands of the police and government. Any act of political defiance, including freedom of expression, could be met with imprisonment, torture or even death. Ending a 38-year oppressive autocratic reign, a new king ascended the throne, and today there is a glimmer of hope that Morocco’s darkest days are in the past. Zakaria, while attending university to study law, followed in his father’s footsteps and took on the role of human rights activist. In partnership with Youth for Human Rights, Zakaria has educated hundreds of thousands of Moroccans on the importance of upholding human rights at every societal and institutional level.
Zakaria El Hamel currently serves as the president of the human rights group he founded, Youth for Peace and Dialogue in Morocco.
