Protecting Helwan Working Girls

The work on such project which was initiated in 1995 was continued, in cooperation with the UNICEF, to recognize the working girls in Helwan Central region and set up care programs for them.

The project further involved the recognition of the families with working girls. The project was expanded to include two new activities:

  • A component for combating female genital mutilation.
  • A component for preventing early marriage and granting working girls' families small loans.
  • Training girls on income-generating activities.
