Children on the Move
UNICEF programming in Egypt has an approach which focuses on resilience and development to respond to the ongoing humanitarian needs of refugee and migrant
UNICEF Egypt has been working with Children on the Move since 2013, when the arrival of Syrian refugees in Egypt prompted UNICEF to adapt its programming to respond to the increased needs of refugee, migrant and vulnerable host community children and their families. UNICEF’s unique
mandate of protecting children’s rights positions the agency to work with all children on the move, regardless of their nationality, legal status, or refugee status.
UNICEF programming in Egypt has an approach which focuses on resilience and development to respond to the ongoing humanitarian needs of refugee, migrant and vulnerable children in the country.
The programme is designed to transform and build the capacity of the Government of Egypt’s (GoE) to meet the needs of the vulnerable groups through the delivery of services. It is supporting the government in it’s efforts to integrate refugees and asylum seekers into Egyptian communities: instead of refugee camps, they are integrated into Egyptian communities, moving freely in the country and with access to public education and primary health care services at an equal level to Egyptian citizens.
