Call for social, cultural and health rights for young street mothers

19.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The practice focuses on the case of young street mothers aged 14 to 22 who are often victims of violence and are pregnant after having been kidnapped and pressed into prostitution. Moreover, despite the adoption of a law enabling women to register their children without being married, Egyptian society continues to consider these homeless mothers as guilty.

To meet this need, Hope Village Society has opened the first psychological rehabilitation centre aimed at street mothers in order to provide them with legal and social protection, complete assistance and care during pregnancy and delivery, professional and employment empowerment, including access to loans, raising awareness of reproductive health, social and family reintegration, and change of traditions and cultures strengthening discrimination and violence against women.

By developing their professional and life skills, these girls have the means to call on the state institutions for their civil and health rights, for themselves and for their children, and enjoy the same opportunities in education, health and employment as men.
