Public seminar on dangers of
trafficking and violence against women and children

In order to maximize the action’s impact on larger scale,
series of seminars were hold to address causes and consequences of human
trafficking and how to combat it. These seminars targeted primarily the
families of the victims who have been identified through community leaders and
religious leaders and schools where drop outs exist as result of early
marriages or child compulsory labour (domestic servants) with the assistance of
the partner NGOs in the targeted areas. The seminars seek to raise the community’s
awareness in the targeted governorates and identify the concept of human
trafficking and what makes families fall into such a trap. The seminars
targeted victims and their families who benefited from legal advice, social and
psychological rehabilitation and other activities of the project. In addition,
they have been encouraged to involve their acquaintances and other members of
the community to enlarge the project’s advocacy against human trafficking. They
acted as activist who work to combat trafficking and advise potential victims
to identify the risks and find alternative ways to provide for their living.

problem of human trafficking like children labour and girls’ early marriage and
derive weaknesses and strengths to be introduced as learned lessons.

Today the world celebrate the international day of rejecting FGM, which was launched and started by Mrs. Stella Obasango, the First Lady of Nigeria then was stated by the UN as an international day to fight this violation.

Because of its widespread in Egypt, FGM has been criminalized since 2008 according to Egyptian penal code.

Although the recent indicators reveal that this phenomenon started to reduce among women and girls in this new generation, yet still there are millions of girls who are exposed to this practice and its risks due to lack of wide open discussion about this sensitive issue; the matter which leads to the continuing of this phenomenon as some people believe in this practice according to their opinions and beliefs.

It is acknowledged internationally that FGM is violation of women and girls’ human rights. It is reflected the deep-rooted gender inequality and represents an excessive form of discrimination against women. This practice violates women and girls’ right to enjoy health and physical safety and their right to non exposing to torture and inhuman, severe and insulting treatment, and their right to live when this operation lead to their death”.

So the Association of Egyptian Female Lawyers will work on the next stages on raising awareness in Upper Egypt and calling the Egyptian government to impose penalties on those who practice FGM.
