유니세프 총재, 이집트의 사업 현장을 방문하다

* UNICEF executive director visits child-centered projects in Egypt * 20 Feb 2007 Schoolgirls welcome the UNICEF Executive Director to Egypt during a recent three day trip. These students attend the Righa Girl Friendly Primary School in Badrashein – one of more than 600 schools offering quality education in remote parts of the country. Righa was built under the UNICEF-supported Girls’ Education Initiative which was launched in 2003 to bridge enrollment rates between girls and boys by 2007. Now for every 100 boys in Egypt’s primary schools there are also 94 girls receiving an education and learning essential life skills. This class is on nutrition. Ms Veneman also met with some of Cairo’s street children at a UNICEF-supported reception centre run by the NGO Caritas. SOUNDBITE (English) Anne M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director: “I think that part of the issue is trying to figure out the extent of the problem. The other challenge is just trying to just reach these kids because they are in so many ways invisible with services. I mean how do you get them health care, how do you get them education, how do you make sure they are protected. And so a child on the street out of the mainstream is really an invisible child that needs extra help.” This centre alone takes in some 25 to 40 street children daily, offering health, education and counseling services. With technical support from UNICEF, staff here prepare children for reintegration into society with psychological care, alternative education and workshops. There are between 600 thousand to 1 million street children in Egypt. As Ms. Veneman heard here first hand, there are multiple reasons for a child to end up on the streets from extreme poverty to poor quality schooling. By supporting programmes like this, UNICEF hopes to bring its experience and technical expertise from around the world and make a difference in these children’s lives… give them a chance to get off the streets and lead a productive life. This is Rachel Bonham Carter reporting for UNICEF Television. Unite for Children.
