Learning for life
From their early years through to adolescence, we're making sure that children in Egypt have the chance to learn.
Working with the government, we've developed national standards for nursery education. In schools, we've helped improve children's literacy by training teachers in new learning techniques. We're also supporting the government in working towards equal access to education and improvements in efficiency.
Our informal learning programme has given thousands of girls in rural areas the chance to learn. Through a combination of literacy, life skills, sports and livelihood support, we're empowering young women in rural communities to make decisions about their lives.
Protecting the vulnerable
Many children in Egypt work in tough conditions to support their families. We're working with the agriculture and cotton industries to improve the situation for child workers and give them the chance to get an education.
For children living on the streets, we're working with local partners to help them access vital services such as protection and healthcare. And through education, life skills, and vocational training we're supporting them to find routes out of poverty.
We're also improving the care of children growing up in institutions. We've developed a national set of standards in partnership with the government, as well as a training programme for social workers to make sure children in institutions are given appropriate care.
