ENHANCING ACCESS OF CHILDREN TO EDUCATION AND FIGHTING CHILD LABOUR
The project is an EU contribution with the World Food Programme of around 50 million euro. It also involves other UN agencies like ILO and UNICEF.
The programme is contributing to the ongoing efforts to tackle some of the most critical issues affecting Egypt’s poorest children: undernutrition, access to quality primary education, and child labour. The programme is targeting 16 of the most vulnerable governorates in Egypt. It aims at ending child labour in the country through enhancing access to education, especially for girls. More than 100,000 children in community schools (mostly poor girls who have dropped out of formal public school) are benefiting from daily in-school snacks (date bars fortified with vitamins and minerals), and around of 400,000 family members are receiving the take home ration over the four year
The project supports micro-loans for women in remote areas of the country and includes social protection approaches towards vulnerable populations.
The Rom exercise intends to review the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of the project.
