Reintegrating street children in Alexandria
Street children re-integrate with their families to fully participate in society
From the mid 90’s, street children have become a tangible phenomenon in all major cities in Egypt, and their number is still rising. Estimates range from 90,000 to 2 million street children, depending on the definition. Children living in the streets face a lot of problems because they are unprotected and face all forms of violence, such as getting arrested, drug abuse, harassment and risky behaviour.
Developing youth volunteers
Youth club nurtures leadership and responsible citizenship
The concept of volunteering is still underdeveloped in Egypt; only a few organizations actively work with volunteers. However, since 1977 Caritas develops youth cadres to lead social work in Alexandria, and our socio-culture youth club is still vibrant four decades later. Muslims and Christians take social action inside and outside Caritas programs. Many of our prominent staff today, first joined us as volunteers many years ago.
