Cairo- AICS staff in Cairo visited the Egyptian NGO Hope Village Society (HVS), which implemented a project titled "Reintegration and protection of the social, health and legal rights of young women and street children in Greater Cairo Governorate" financed under the third phase of the Italian-Egyptian Debt Swap Programme. The NGO strives for the reintegration and protection of the social, health and legal rights of young women and street children. The visit took place to the NGO's center in the Mokattam area in Cairo, that at the moment hosts about 25 girls and young mothers.
