Our Safe Areas model aims to create safer streets and neighborhoods one space at a time. The idea is to partner with small businesses, cafes, restaurants, kiosks and taxi drivers and support them to adopt zero-tolerance policies against sexual harassment. By working with people who have a fixed location and already interact with the street and everyday life, we believe we can make durable changes to streets and neighborhoods, whereby our partners become role models demonstrating to their peers and customers that it is possible to make harassment-free zones in Egypt. The idea is that such examples become contagious, and that all businesses and social spaces recognize that it is in their best interest and the interests of all of us to take simple, clear steps to prevent sexual harassment and provide assistance to those who have been sexually harassed.
