For girls in Egypt’s rural Banha area, there wasn’t much going on. That’s why Isra al-Sayyid, a local veterinarian, and a few other volunteers decided to create a place in Banha, located 18 miles north of Cairo, where girls watch films, engage in intellectual discussions, play games, seek emotional and psychological support, and participate in a number of other social, educational, and philanthropic activities. The volunteers called the project the Girl Zone.
