In the Nile Delta there are 456 thousand children without access to education.

Black Friday through Cyber Monday, 2017, your orders funded a school for 33 of those students.

The Nile Delta

We’ve always maintained a close tie to our roots, learning about our farmers’ struggles in the process. After many conversations with our partners, our biggest takeaway was a need for convenient access to education for their children.

The State of Education

  1. Primary schools are few and far between, leading to over-crowded classrooms.
  2. Most rural children don’t have access to safe transportation and many end up dropping out.
  3. Young girls are not given the same learning opportunities as boys, widening the gender gap.
  4. There’s a direct correlation between illiteracy and poverty.

The School

We’re working with a local NGO to provide education to 33 underprivileged children between the ages of 6-14 who have either never been enrolled in any formal educational system or dropped out from one. We’re implementing a 2:1 female to male student ratio in an effort to empower young girls to experience equal opportunity.

For four days, your orders will fund the purchase and build out of school infrastructure, salaries for teachers, laptops, maintenance for the roads that link communities to our schools, books and supplies, a science lab, water and electricity, furniture, and technical training for facilitators.

Ingy

Like most students here, Ingy couldn’t read or write before School started in September. Three months later, she’s thriving. There’s still a long way to go, but Ingy is enjoying every day.

Our Goal:

By 2025, we aim to have built 50 of these single classroom schools, in underprivileged villages like El Khadra, throughout the Nile Delta.

November 24 - 27, 2017, your belief in our mission funded our second school; over-shooting the goal by more than $10,000. We are deeply grateful for your support.
