Safeguarding Children

Ezbit el Nakhl Village & Helwan Village, Egypt


We organized an awareness campaign for children about sexual harassment. One hundred twenty children attended in Ezbit el Nakhl Village and 100 children in Helwan Village. The children were taught that there are sensitive places on their bodies that cannot be touched, what to do when they face harassment, and to say, “NO!” They were also taught the importance of telling their families if they faced harassment.


The day was composed of a stage show and songs about the same topic. At the end of the day, we distributed toys that were symbols to remind them of what they learned about that topic.
