Summary of Edraak’s Activities in the First Half of 2023

Edraak Foundation for Development and Equality provides a summary of its activities in the first half of the year from January 2023 until June 2023. In the first half of the year, the Foundation issued its annual report: the Gender-Based Violence Crimes Observatory, which is one of the mechanisms by which the Foundation monitors the rates, frequency and forms of violent crimes directed against women and girls.

The Foundation launched a number of campaigns, including the “Safe Communication4women Campaign”. The campaign revolves around feminist initiatives and groups in Egypt while focusing on the role of women’s rights defenders who rely mainly on digital spaces and tools to advocate for their causes. Another campaign was launched called “Enough Clichés”. It is a campaign about the most frequent scenes of violence in drama series, and this campaign coincided with the month of Ramadan, which witnessed the highest rate of drama production in Egypt. Then the “Emergency C” campaign on menstruation was launched to shed light on alternatives to sanitary pads, and how to use these alternatives hygienically and safely.

In light of its plan to enhance the capacities of women leaders in the public sphere, the Foundation organized several training programs, including “training to enhance the capacities of women leaders in society.” This training came within a series that the Foundation started two years ago to raise the capacities of women leaders in the public sphere. During the training, the Foundation targeted 120 women and girls from 18 governorates on the republic level. The Foundation also organized the “Gender Sensitive Reporting Training”, which included strengthening the capacities of 21 journalists from different newspapers towards gender-sensitive reporting.
