The Association for the Development and

Enhancement of Women (ADEW)

ADEW was registered as a


nongovernmental
organization with the Egyptian
Ministry of Social Solidarity in
1987
under
registration
number 3528.
The first ADEW office opened in
Manshiet Nasser, which is one of
the largest and most populated
squatter communities in Egypt
generally and Cairo specifically.
2

ADEW was the first NGO to


address the needs of Female Heads
of Households (FHH) in lowincome areas and identify them as a
distinct target group since we
started our work in Manshiet
Nasser

As we discovered that 40% of all


households in the Manshiet Nasser
are female-headed households,
and that they had no skills
3

Because the female in this area drops


school when she is 9 years old, and get
married at the age of 16. And at the same
time the government programs did not
extend to squatter areas by then.

So ADEW was the first NGO to


introduce the term of "Female House
Holds, in addition to design and
implement integrated programs

to assist them in their struggle as


breadwinners, and to accomplish our target
in achieving the sustainable development
in the Egyptian society.

ADEW through a research conducted by ADEW Chairperson,


Dr. Iman Bibars, revealed that an alarming 30% of daughters
of ADEW beneficiaries have dropped out of school, and that
they have no ambitions or daydreams about their future.

This program targets female dropouts from 11 to 20 years of age.,


As many girls in working areas are pushed out of schools to help
their families or to get married, ADEW has targeted the little girls
who are deprived from education and has worked on reshaping
their interests and empowering them to fit in with their
communities and changing their low self-esteem. That is why
ADEW decided to implement Girls Dreams Program.

The Girls Dreams Program was


started in 1999 believing in girls
rights to dream, express themselves
and to have the ability to make a
choice.
We seek through Girls Dreams to
teach girls how to dream and enjoy
their lives through a set of activities
including: self confidence, health
awareness, visiting libraries, drawing,
sports and handicrafts to enable
them to start up their SMEs.
8

The program has been introduced via opening class


rooms, with 20 girls per class. The place is rented in
the same streets where the girls live to guarantee the
sustainability of the program and the graduation of the
girls.
The program is not only to teach girls useful skills but
also to help them solve their problems. The girls
narrate their problems while the program offers them a
healthy environment to speak out and express their
problems. The program also offers health awareness
sessions and discussions about early marriage and
FGM/C.
9

In parallel to the Girls Dreams


syllabus, the program works on
equipping the girls with many
skills like playing music, singing
,drawing and handicrafts like
needlework, accessories, that help
girls to create their profitable
small projects.
Number
of
Girls
Dreams
Programs
Beneficiaries
reached 16,000 girls so far.

Through more than 15 years, ADEW developed Girls


Dreams program to fulfil the girls needs. So we implement
the following components:

Curriculum
of Girls
Dreams

Vocational
training

Literacy
Classes

Sports

Legal
Component

11

ADEW staff members facilitate a


Girls Dreams specialized wellstructured curriculum, which consists
of 3 main parts.

The curriculum has been updated


recently to keep pace with developments
in the community, and some subjects and
topics have been added after determining
knowledge needs targeted to girls from
the program.

Dreams program for
Facilitators

The parts of the curriculum are:

Part I: Related to life skills and personal


relationships
such
as:
decision-making,
participation,
self-confidence
and
communication, were added current subjects
such as: sexual harassment and how the girls can
address and fight it, Personal hygiene.
Part II: is a healthy approach to teach girls
changing the wrong habits which women grew
up on such as: FGM and early marriage.

Another important part was added which is the


importance of exercise and its impact on the
girl's body and fitness.

Girls inside the


classes discussing
topics like
Nutrition and
Personal hygiene
13

Part III: is the legal component by which


ADEW inform the girls of their legal rights, and
the importance of official documents, and the
dangers of signing any papers without carefully
reading them.

activities.

ADEW

encourages distinguished girls


through giving them presents and gifts, and
that encourage girls to participate more
and more.
20

The girls express themselves


through various activities as
we mentioned before- and
one of these activities is:

25

Girls Dreams beneficiaries also express themselves


through:

Singing.
ADEW succeeded to
form a Corus team
from the targeted
girls of the program.

26

ADEW

gives the chance for the girls to express


themselves through:

Acting.
ADEW found that it motivates
their imagination and enhance
their skills.

27

Participating in educational and


cultural trips is one of the
activities that ADEW was keen to
provide beside facilitating the
curriculum of Girls Dreams.

Through the program ADEW organizes trips for girls to


learn more about Egypt and to increase their affiliation and
also to make them feel others care about them, because such
a feeling is absent in most cases within their families.

28

After

ADEW implement the three mentioned parts of


the (Girls Dreams Program) curriculum, we begin to
give girls extra and integrated activities like:

Vocational Training.
Sports

component.
Literacy Classes.
Some other extra activities through some of ADEWs
programs.

Amira Sayyed one of Girls


Dreams beneficiaries said
that

The program provided me with


a bundle of skills and
knowledge, and I chose to
participate in
the Wooden
handicrafts workshops, and
learnt how to manufacture
wooden products, and how to
market it.
I dream of having my own
project, and I will accomplish
this dream through what I
have learnt from Girls
Dreams
39

To meet the needs of the girls of Girls Dreams, after


giving them the curriculum, ADEW provides literacy classes
for the girls
where ADEW signed a protocol with Egyptian assembly
of Adult Education (EAEA), to have the possibility of
opening literacy classes for young girls and women who
did not arrive to the age at which they can extract the
national ID card, as one of the condition to Join literacy
classes is to have a national ID card
but ADEW through its good relationship with EAEA could
provide this service for the girls, by signing the mentioned
protocol.

Amira Abdel Azeemone of


the programs beneficiariessaid that:
I dropped out from school and
after that I stayed for 3 years in
home doing nothing, then when I
heard about the program I
decided to participate, and the
days proved that my choice was
right, as I learnt a lot of useful
things and enhanced my skills.
43

ADEW helps the girls in playing various sports and to exercise, in order to
provide them with confidence in themselves, to have fitness and healthy bodies, to
provide them with life skills required to help them in expressing themselves freely
and provide them with skills to work as a team.

Through this component ADEW provide to girls membership in youth center to let
her go any time to play.

Girls play basketball-handball-volleyball, and self-defense games, such as Kung


Fu, they also play Aerobics.

The girls were so keen to prove to their parents that they can manage playing
sports and to study and to do their daily duties, and they succeeded to do so.
