Development Program Objectives:

Targeting 16 of the most vulnerable governorates in Egypt aims at ending child labour through enhancing access to education, especially for girls. The project provides 100,000 children in community schools with a daily in-school snacks (date bars fortified with vitamins and minerals) as well as take-home food rations (10 kg of rice and 1 litre of oil) to their families. Over the four-year duration of the project, up to 400,000 family members will receive the take-home rations, the value of which compensates for the wage child would earn if sent to work.
