• ADEW: An Arab Feminist Blog

    Welcome to ADEW's blog. We explore the stories and issues women in Egyptian squatter communities face daily, such as domestic violence, poverty and marginalization. We hope to explore the ways our community can empower these women, and create a lasting impact in their lives.

The populations of Masr El Qadima, Mainsheet Nasser and Agouza areas, together with the members of the Helwan, Gharbia and Qualubyia governorates live in extreme poverty which has directly affected the shape and character of the education that their children receive.

The poor background and harsh conditions of these students makes it very difficult for their parents to pay their tuition fees. A large number of the students enrolled in these public schools are not capable of paying their tuition fees and have parents who are not capable of providing basic support for their own children. The basic materials that any student needs (uniforms, books, notebooks, etc.) are not available for these poor children because their parents cannot simply afford them. Providing these students with these vital necessities would bring about many opportunities for them and it would remove an enormous burden from their parents.

Therefore, in order to alleviate poverty and promote access to education, the Association for the Development and Enhancement of Women would like to invite you all to join our mission of providing children living in squatter areas with access to education by offering them scholarships. A small donation today can change the future of a child forever.

The scholarship for each student is LE 1,000 for each scholastic year. This scholarship would enable a child to afford the tuition fees, uniform, books, school bag, stationery, shoes and sports uniform.

أنا اسمى نعيمة و عندى 16 سنة وخلصت سنة تالتة إعدادى ، بس أنا خرجت من المدرسة عشان أساعد ماما فى البيت ، عشان أنا البنت الكبيرة فى اخواتى ، وماما كانت بتتعب أوى من خدمتنا كلنا مع شغلها فى المحل . معنديش وقت عشان ادخل فصول محو الأمية أو عشان اتعلم الخياطة أو أى فصول ممكن اتعلم منها . أنا بابتدى اشتغل من الصبح بدرى لغاية باليل متأخر . عندى ست اخوات ولاد و بنات أعمارهم مختلفة . شوية منهم بيروحوا المدرسة وأنا باحضر لهم الفطار الصبح وباساعدهم فى اللبس . شوية من اخواتى كمان بيشتغلوا وأنا لازم برضه أحضرلهم الفطار . الباقيين بقى هما إللى أصغر منى وإللى أنا بأخلى بالى منهم طول اليوم . ويومى العادى بيمر عليا من تنضيف البيت ، للطبيخ والغسيل ورعاية اخواتى الصغيرين .



النساء المعيلات لأسر:
تشكل "النساء المعيلات لأسر" وكل ما يتعلق بهن من مشكلات وقضايا ..فئة مهمشة ؛ وذلك بسبب العادات والتقاليد التى لا تنتبه لوجود المرأة المعيلة أو لا تعترف به!، هذا ما اكتشفته جمعية نهوض وتنمية المرأة منذ بدء عملها ولا تزال تؤمن به ، ولكن فى الوقت نفسه ، تؤمن جمعيتنا بأن وضع هذه الفئة من النساء لا يمكن النهوض به إلا من خلال التمكين الإجتماعى والقانونى والإقتصادى لهن
