Why We Help Children in Egypt

In 2014, nationwide rates of stunting affected approximately 21.4% of under-five children; while wasting was recorded at 8.4%, and underweight at 5.5% nationwide.

According to the 2006 census, some 8.1% or 1.4 million children between 6 and 17 years of age were never enrolled in school or dropped out of basic education.

In 2014, 93% of children in Egypt have been subject to some form of violent disciplinary practice by their parents/caregivers, often in combination with non-violent discipline.

Project Educate

 

December 2019

Location: Cairo, Cairo Governate

Number of Children Impacted: 131

Issue Tackled: Student Unpreparedness

Each child received: A uniform set

Underlying Issue: The students live in government housing and receive a monthly government pension of 400 Egyptian Pounds. These forms of aid seem to have a great impact but actually do little to improve the wellbeing of the youth, as the houses are poorly managed and the pension can only be used to cover a very small fraction of a family's expenses.

Out of the 131 children assisted, 72 were from Martyr Sayed Sobhy School, 22 were from The Valley School, and 37 were from 6th of October School. We hope to provide further support to all three orphanages through Project Shelter.
