Every Last Child Country Spotlight: Egypt

Save the Children is campaigning at an international and national level to achieve the greatest impact for children with the Every Last Child Campaign.

Adolescent girls in urban settings are amongst the most deprived groups in Egypt. They experience high levels of discrimination and significant inequalities of opportunity in education, visibility and mobility, economic opportunities and ability to influence decision-making. They also experience harassment in different spheres. This campaign aims to see adolescent girls from urban slum areas able to make safe choices without fear of harassment. It will mobilise support to revise and activate existing legal protections and promote implementation through the policy agenda, enable access to services, while also tackling public and institutional attitudes which condone and enable harassment of girls.
