Street Children Day
- View SourceLocal NGOs in Cairo organized the 1st Street Children Day last friday
(23rd February). The event had activities for children (painting,
pottery, puppets show) and performers who did comedy sketches.
There are an estimated 400,000 children (under 16) who have dropped
out from school and are either working long hours for a low pay or
have been involved in small crimes. The event was made as a part of
an awareness campaign to encourage children to stay in school.
