Plan has been working in Egypt for more than 30 years, serving more than 1,500,000 children and their families in 6 governorates.
We focus on child rights, implementing programmes designed to enable communities to improve the lives of the most marginalised children by working with women, youth and civil society organisations.
Plan Egypt has deep grassroots local knowledge and relationships with communities and works to build the capacities of communities and organisations to promote child rights.
Proving that he can!
The UN estimates that there are more than 12 million people living with disabilities in Egypt, of which around 4 million are children. Persons with disability generally suffer from exclusion and discrimination. Ahmed's story shows how he has overcome the challenges children with disability face. It also highlights how by providing persons with disability with equal access to opportunities, they will add great value to their communities.
