Wataneya collaborates with government entities to maximize sustainable impact in the best interest of children and youth without parental care, and to achieve Egypt Vision 2030.
The collaboration with the Ministry of Social Solidarity plays an integral role in the development of Wataneya's framework and protocol development to ensure a better life for children and youth without parental care.
Through this partnership, not only was Wataneya Society the first to develop quality standards for care homes but it also has a proven and ongoing track record of applying and unifying the care standards for children without parental care.
In 2008, Wataneya developed the quality standards based on intensive research. After rigorous testing in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Solidarity and Civil Society, a ministerial decree was issued to oblige the care homes to apply quality standards for child care in 2014
Since, Wataneya has joined the Higher Committee of Alternative Families and issued a manual guide on the procedural steps for the alternative families system in cooperation with FACE foundation. Wataneya also trained the Ministry's staff on the manual, which was a crucial step in activating the new alternative family system.
In 2019, in collaboration with MoSS and Drosos foundation, Wataneya launched the "Care Leavers Independence" project, with a focus on developing the after care system in Egypt. To ensure best practices and quality care, Wataneya also launched the "TOT" Parasocial worker training program to build the MoSS staff capacities
Furthermore, With a focus on mental well-being like never before, Wataneya launched the "Their safety is our responsibility" project, which protects children from any kind of abuse and ensures their mental and physical well-being are catered to. Wataneya has been able to empower 60 care homes through the project.
