CAIRO – 12 September 2020: The Ministry of Immigration and Egyptian Expats Affairs is working closely with the World Food Program (WFP) on various levels to reduce the illegal migration phenomenon.
The second phase of the training program targeted at one-room-school teachers for them to raise the students' awareness on the risks of illegal migration and the official ways to seek migration was launched on September 1 and concluded on September 7.
The second phase took place in Matrouh as it is one of the top governorates producing illegal migrants. The training was delivered to eight teachers belonging to eight schools that are Awlad Emira, Abou Kashouk, Awlad Fahd, Awlad Al Gebali, Abou Shahba, Nagea Al Malah, Al Negila, and Amr Ibn Al As.
The program is held by the Ministry of Immigration and Egyptian Expat Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Technical Education, and the WFP.
The first phase was delivered in the governorates of Asyut, Qena, and Luxor to 83 teachers on July 13-20. The breakdown is 20 in Asyut, 15 in Qena, and 48 in Luxor.
One more training was delivered in Qena on August 23-30 to 15 teachers working at 10 one-room schools.
The Ministry of Immigration and Egyptian Expats Affairs seeks to sign a cooperation protocol with the WFP to train Egyptian youths in governorates that produce most of illegal migrants on professions that can be performed remotely such as online selling, call centers, and customer care.
