The overall objective of the project: Strengthening Institutional and Human Resources Capacities of the Ministry of Social Solidarity – Support to COVID-19 Response,  is to support the Ministry of Social Solidarity on Egypt’s Social protection response for COVID19, as part of the EU’s COVID19 response funding. The project is funded by the European Union Delegation in Egypt. The suggested outputs are responsive to the priority areas of interventions identified by MOSS.

The project will work on four outputs including:

  • Output 1: Enhanced awareness of Takaful and Karama beneficiaries on COVID19 through supporting MoSS in adapting and expanding existing Waai programme advocacy and awareness tools
  • Output 2: Enhanced institutional capacity of MoSS through digitalization of systems to better support beneficiaries respond to Covid19
  • Output 3: Improved socioeconomic status of vulnerable groups amid Covid19
