Celebrating the International Youth Day
UNICEF Egypt participates in Abu-Quir Youth Camp, organizing life skills sessions through Meshwary project trainers.
UNICEF Egypt’s Adolescent Development and Participation Programme supported the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) in implementing ‘Meshwary’ (My Journey) Project Phase I (2008-2011) and II (2012-2016). The project aimed at equipping disadvantaged young people (13 – 24 years) with enterprise, employability, financial and life skills to enable them to be economically and socially-empowered to make strategic choices about their future. This takes place through sessions at youth centers and in events with a high flow of the target audience such as the Abo-keer Youth Camp that was organized as a collaboration between many UN agencies in celebration of the International Youth Day 2017.
In the third phase of the project that started in 2017, supported by the Italian Cooperation, UNICEF and the MoYS is prioritizing poor and low-income districts in five governorates; the main focus will be on communities with a high number of vulnerable adolescents and youth and/or consolidated trends of irregular/illegal migration.
