Women's Hosting and Guidance Shelters

In cooperation with the Ministry of Social Solidarity and under the framework of UN Women's 'Ending Violence Against Women Programme', extensive work has been carried out over the past 3 years to enhance the capacities of 8 shelters located across Egypt, to support women survivors of violence. With the support and generous contribution of USAID/Egypt the programme served to upgrade the physical capacities of shelters and ensure they are better equipped to host women, while also working with shelter staff and management to broaden their understanding and knowledge of psychosocial support and counselling for women hosted or those most at risk in the community. #EVAW #UNWomen #GenderEquality
