Prevention of Child Labor

Funded by the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood through the International Bank, the Egyptian Red Crescent (ERC) started an action plan through the following:

  • Rapid assessment of the current situation.
  • Providing comprehensive health and educational services and promotionalactivities, weekly gathering of the children, workers and their families, as well as providing special programs for employers and preventing the involvement of child labor in hazardous occupations.
  • Procuring small loans for working children's families.
  • Preventing school dropouts.
