Scholarship program for girls in school failure

22.09.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

Many girls from the villages of Upper Egypt are deprived of education and, therefore, they cannot improve their situation or their children’s situation. This program aimed at keeping the most marginalized girls in schools through a set of initiatives and actions such as the reimbursement of school expenses, buying uniforms and supplies, the intervention of the "big sister" to help women victims of violence and a monthly premium to encourage their school enrolment and attendance.

Gender awareness-raising activities were organized for girls to think and talk about their existence. Government entities were also involved in the program in order to empower them in the implementation of laws and policies that promote the continuity of education and the fight against violence against women. Finally, the program aimed to encourage the media to provide positive images of girls and denounce gender-based discrimination.

This practice has been identified in the framework of the CSO WINS project (Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open policy dialogue and monitoring for Women IN Society), with the support of the European Union’s Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility.
