As well as awareness-raising that results in long-term positive results on a larger scale.
Vision Changing people's lives for the better with a clear impact on society through the support and implementation of self-sustainable projects to improve the Egyptian citizen and improve services.
Strategy and areas of work The Foundation focuses on four main pillars to engage in sustainable projects: • Education • Health • Agriculture • Social Entrepreneurship
When all agree that education is the priority of a nation, and that it’s the only way to promote this nation, it becomes a necessity - indeed a national duty – that civil society institutions should be involved in building new foundations and a different vision of the form of education in Egypt. And that’s why synergy of efforts became an urgent necessity for a true educational renaissance. For this reason, Education First Foundation was one of the contributions of civil society organizations to support education in the Arab world.
