Shoubra District, Cairo

The project envisaged the construction of a Family Health Centre (FHC) in the urban district of Shoubra (Cairo), which started in 2009 and was completed in 2011. The project also supported the electricity installations and furnishing of the FHC with required furniture and procured medical equipment for the centre’s emergency, patient observation, immunisation, sterilisation, maternity, pharmaceutical and x-ray units by 2013. The FHC has opened to the public in 2011 and continues to be fully operational. The project also envisaged capacity building activities for local institutions and stakeholders and technical assistance to be carried on by the Catholic University "Sacro Cuore" of Rome. read more close

Together with the construction of the Family Health Centre (FHC), the project document included a training component which was supposed to be dedicated to the capacity building of the Centre’s personnel and to the realisation of applied research on basic health services to be provided by the Catholic “Sacro Cuore” University of Rome. However, UNDP underlined the impossibility to proceed with this component for administrative reasons.

Consequently, the Project was suspended and UNDP found itself with a residual sum of circa 497,203 USD, including accumulated interests, belonging to the first installment of the Italian grant, since the second one has never been disbursed.

Actions taken

In November 2014 the Italian Cooperation proposed to reallocate the residual funds to the component “Empowering Women and Youth through Handicraft and Cottage Industry Development in Upper Egypt” of the project Egypt Network for Integrated Development (ENID) which started in 2013 in collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of International Cooperation. The project, implemented by UNDP, intends to address the socio-economic challenges present in Egypt by developing skills of young people and women as well as promoting their entrepreneurship. It poses itself in substantial continuity and synergy not only with the commitment of the Italian Cooperation to support the micro, small and medium enterprises, but also with the objectives identified by the Egyptian government in the National Plan for Economic and Social Development up to 2022. The main direct beneficiaries of the activities are 140 girls/women aged 18 years and above who dropped out of school and never had the opportunity to develop their professional skills. Other beneficiaries are micro and small enterprises of carpentry and furniture that work in Qena, in the district of Al Salheya, and youth and marginalized local population who will benefit from a greater opportunity to work off-farm.
