Egypt launched this week the third phase ‘Calm not Harm‘ for the campaign ‘Awladna’ that stands against violence towards children, the campaign is a partnership between the National Council of Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM), UNICEF and Egypt’s education ministry.

The campaign hopes to fight the common use of violent acts against children and replace this behavior with a calmer and more understanding one, through the increase of awareness on how to deal with children during the critical age of growth.

Teacher and parents play a significant role in guiding children and that why their attitude and role must be of a positive one, this can be achieved by containing them and increasing their self-esteem and confidence.

According to NCCM secretary-general, Azza El-Ashmawy, the  ‘Calm not harm’ is the third phase of the national campaign ‘Awladna’ that help create a safer environment for children.

The campaign went viral after a video was published on the official page of the education ministry, the video showed parents arguing with their kids when they speak of their needs, and a little girl wishing her parents could talk wither her instead of fighting.

This comes two weeks after the unfortunate death of five-year-old Janna, a victim of torture by her grandmother in the Daqahliya governorate. The Egyptian Child Law 12/1996 prohibits the use of physical harm against children, and those found guilty of anything related would be subjected to imprisonment for no less than six months.
