The EU has launched a new project contributing to promoting and protecting children, young women and men living in the street in Cairo. The project, which has been allocated a budget of EUR 300,000, seeks to improve protection and promotion of the rights of extremely vulnerable, marginalised and discriminated children, young women and men in street situations in Cairo.
By the end of the two-year project, marginalised children and youth in Cairo will have an improved access to their basic rights through medical, psychological, social and educational assistance. Local capacities to protect the rights of those children, young women and men living in the street will be reinforced and a large number of the Egyptian population will become more attentive to child protection issues.
