Awareness programmes on sexual harassment and violence will soon be part of Egypt’s school curriculum.
The Ministry of Education will integrate an awareness programme covering violence and sexual harassment in public schools. The new programme will help students identify suspicious behavior, and how to deal with it in the appropriate manner.
Led by a social expert, a psychology expert and a religious educator, the programme will run in elementary and secondary schools alike, as well as higher education technical programmes. Posters and pamphlets will also be given out in youth populated areas, clubs, schools, universities and orphanages.
