Under the slogan (A Dream for my Country), CEOSS launched a festival for children at risk at the same time last year, coinciding with the celebration of the festivals of childhood. Because it is not only a slogan for CEOSS, but also a message that we all believe in, CEOSS decided to re-launch the festival on Saturday, December 14th at Sinbad Amusement Park with the participation of 400 children from the project working areas in Qalubeya and Cairo and attended by the concerned representatives from the government and committees of protection at Dar Al-Salam ,Caliph and Shubra Al Khaimah areas.
It is worth mentioning that this festival comes within the closure of advocacy activities within the “Enabling Children at Risk in Egypt to fulfill their rights” project funded by Danmission. The project aims to improve the quality of life for the ‘Children at Risk’, (working children, disabled children and street children), by enabling them to fulfil their rights, especially in relation to education and health. This project was built on CEOSS’s rooted experience in promoting sustainable poverty alleviation through civil society advocacy and implementing developmental local initiatives that have a direct impact on the quality of life of children at risk.
