Egypt is a developing country, with 26.3% of the population living in extreme poverty, and 49.9% of the population living under the upper poverty line (Poverty: Egypt, 2015). Education attainment is extremely limited, and public schools are not considered a good source for educational attainment.
Our Partners in Egypt:
Tawasol is one of our partners, reputable NGO established by a group of volunteers with extensive experience in community development in 2008. Tawasol is focused on providing quality services to the residents of one of the poorest areas in Cairo, namely Establ Antar/ Ezbet Khairallah/ Batn El Ba’ar.
Ezzbet Khairallah’s population reached 750,000 citizens in 2016, as per the Minister of Education. Only one public school is serving Ezzbet Khairallah’s growing population
Tawasol aims to develop childing through education, various vocational trainings, and performing arts trainings. It also aims at developing children’s ability to live a better life at a better standard of living, through improving their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. Moreover, it develops skills and talents for students to be able to generate income on their own.

By contributing to this project you are helping us raise the necessary funds to build one classroom within this school project.
Based on our member feedback it is most likely that we will start fundraising for another classroom as soon as we finish raising funds for this classroom.
Each classrom funded by ‘Education is Our Future’ members will bear a sign with our name and logo near its entrance.
