We work together with a local organisation in an enormous slum to the west of Cairo. Its goal is to enable vulnerable girls to go to school and learn to stand up for themselves. We have chosen a target group of 200 such girls because that is what we are able to cope with.
These girls largely live on the streets, where they beg or try to sell various trinkets. But they need to go to school, and we help with this. Our various projects encourage these girls to have a more positive self-image and to set higher goals for themselves in life. We also provide various sorts of training that will enable them to find better work later on.

The output will be posted on the website of CCPS and will be an integral part of its resources. In order to receive the Zoom address, please make sure to let us know on: firstname.lastname@example.org
