Challenge

Sexual harassment is a daily reality in Egypt. 2008 study 86.2% & 34% married women, 99% & 37.4% unmarried female youth respectively reported incidences of verbal & sexual harassment. This curriculum aims to intercept children at a young age to instill anti-abuse values, allowing them to refuse, advocate and report sexual abuse. Research shows it takes 18-224 days to change behavior. The curriculum is slowly teaching new habits, overwriting existing habits: by repetition over the school year

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 100 female students, 100 male students and 60 teachers causing a ripple effect in the community, Raising the public profile of the anti sexual abuse curriculum program on the local selected community level and on the national level (if achieved this will strongly support the replication of the Make Them Aware: Protect Them model in other geographical areas in Egypt) Mobilize support from Government, civil society, religious leaders, opinion leaders and public.
