The European Union (EU) and the World Food Programme (WFP) recently launched a 4-year 60 million Euro project aimed at fighting child labor in Egypt. This project serves a strong ongoing continuation of both organizations' activities in Egypt to fight forms of child labors, and it aims at decreasing child labor in 16 governorates, mostly in Upper Egypt, by providing food assistance to children in school, and livelihoods incentives to their families to discourage them to send their children to work.

The beneficiaries will be 100,000 children each year, mainly girls, and their families (around 400,000 individuals), who will receive food rations that compensate for the child not working and attending school instead, working as an incentive. In addition, the WFP will support 50,000 families, especially mothers, to start income generating activities that will help keep their children in school.
