Egypt’s 2014 Constitution recognizes social protection and social justice as a right for citizens and
dedicated one pillar of the national Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) Egypt Vision 2030
specifically to social justice (fifth pillar), with specific reference to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
1, 2, and 5.

The Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS) is the mandated government body responsible for providing social
safety networks for Egypt’s most vulnerable citizens. MoSS’ main vision goals aims in creating a social
safety net for citizens by supporting and protecting poor families, caring for lowincome people, raising
their standard of living and improving the level of services provided to them, in addition to MoSS’ three
main strategic policies: Social Protection, Social Care, and Social Development.

The project “Strengthening the Institutional and Human Resources Capacities of the Ministry of Social
Solidarity” is implemented by Ministry of Social Solidarity and supported by the United Nations
Development Program (UNDP) and funded by the European Union (EU) Delegation and the Government
of UK.

The overall objective of the project is to support MoSS on Egypt’s Social protection response for COVID

areas of interventions identified by MOSS.
