Wataneya Society for the Development of Orphanages is an Egyptian non-governmental organization dedicated to improving conditions for children outside of parental care, providing them the safe and healthy environment they need to grow into successful individuals. To that end, Wataneya helps institutional homes improve the level of support they provide through the implementation of a set of standards for alternative childcare, which were approved by the government in 2014 to serve as the benchmark for quality service in the field.
