Good News from Egypt

This NGO moved into one of the poorest neighborhoods in Giza. In just four crowded streets, 150 families are trying to get by. The target: find women from households with less than LE 400 per month (USD 70) and equip them with skills to get a job. The success: 50 women are employed and 24 more are trained to work from home. They earn around LE 200 per month; money needed for the family’s dinner table and school books. A key to the project is that it is also helping the women to find a job, even bargaining with employers. Women from other deprived neighborhoods have already come to ask if the project will be extended. Congratulations! Link
