CAIRO – 7 March 2021: “Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) issued an infograph revealing its role in women empowerment through education.


This move comes in a celebration of International Women’s Day, which will take place on March 8.


The infograph showed that there are 43 schools that provide students with Japanese style education, where 79.7 percent of teachers in Egypt-Japan school are females, who are currently leading the application of Tokkatsu in Egypt.


Tokkatsu is a Japanese whole child education system, and is being promoted in the Egypt-Japan schools to nurture the students, regardless of gender, with a balanced development of social, emotional, and academic skills with cultivation of interpersonal skills.


It added that 81 percent of teachers received training in Japan are female teachers.


According to JICA, 3,225 female students are enrolled in Egypt-Japan schools, representing 41.2 percent of total student number.


It clarified that Tokkatsu is a special educational activity contributing to enhancing classroom discussion to promote  communications between students and enable girls to express their needs and opinions, and reducing the gender gap in education and improve women’s status in society.


It also works on developing female teacher’s capacity on active learning methodologies and positive disciplines; thus, they can transmit it not only to their students, but also to their children’s education and discipline.
