Perhaps owing to her innate elegance, her peers refer to 10-year-old Fatima, from Tawayel El-Sharqiyya as a future leader. Her words are strong, as are her positions on the urgent need to protect the environment. Like the primary school children of 373 primary schools in Assiut, Sohag and Qena governorates, Fatima has directly benefited from UNICEF’s School Sanitation and Hygiene Education (SSHE) project, which was launched last year. And because of the close-knit nature of the communities in Upper Egyptian villages and towns, the impact of the project has been manifold, and profound. [authors abstract]
