Location: Alex. & Damietta, ALX, EG

The Organization
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Purpose:
Irregular migration, especially through dangerous sea journeys, emanating from and through Egypt poses significant protection risks to the prospective migrants and their families, particularly children. Plan International Egypt aims to address some root causes of irregular migration, particularly related to economic insecurity among refugee and their hosting communities. This project, aims to address issues of economic and social exclusion and create conditions that at-risk young Egyptian and Syrian men and women in Alexandria and Damietta are not pushed to undertake risky irregular migration journeys. In the medium term, the project will enhance the livelihood options of 500 households, and reduce negative coping mechanisms. The project will empower 800 Egyptian and Syrian youths to actively engage and take root in their local communities and make informed decisions regarding migration. Social and economic integration between Syrian refugees and Egyptian host communities will be enhanced through skills development, income generating activities and the promotion of dialogue between the two groups as well as with local decision makers. This is complemented with participatory awareness raising activities on risks and threats related to irregular migration. Collectively, this will reduce the pressure of push factors and in turn reduce irregular migration
