Egypt | Plan International Skip to main content


Plan International began operating in Egypt in 1981 to reduce the abuse, marginalisation and vulnerability of children and address gender inequality.

Gender inequality remains a huge issue in Egypt, affecting all areas of girls’ and women’s lives. Males and females have unequal access to education, protection, participation and employment among others. In addition, harmful practices, especially child marriage and female genital mutilation, are still widespread. 

As a result, girls from Egyptian and Syrian refugee communities are stopped from realising their full potential and getting good jobs. 

Our work aims to transform perceptions about what girls and women are capable of to address the issues they face. In doing this we aim to have a lasting impact on the lives of children, their families and communities.

Our key areas of work include:

  • Helping young people to get good jobs or start a business 
  • Enabling children to get a quality, inclusive education in a safe environment that respects girls’ needs
  • Empowering girls and young women to take informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and live free from violence.
