In the project, Impact of Childcare Subsidies and Employment Services on Women’s Labor Force Participation in Egypt, researchers found that relieving one or two constraints may be insufficient to allow women to work. Multifaceted programs and additional policy approaches are needed. Such programs are designed to tackle a variety of constraints simultaneously through a multitude of bundled interventions. 

Researchers are conducting a randomized evaluation to test the impact of a package of interventions with the aim of improving the quality of nurseries, enhancing nutrition, and empowering women to address poverty and promote early childhood development in Egypt.

Research ongoing; results forthcoming.
