Economic Empowerment in Egypt

Promote economic empowerment of vulnerable young men & women

Employment opportunities remain limited with unemployment rate reaching 13.1%. Egypt has one of the lowest rates of female labour force participation in the world – only 23.6% of women over the age of 15 are thought to be actively seeking work. 

We work with Young men & women, influential community leaders, CSO actors & youth groups, local & national government representatives, and  formal employers to ensure that the most marginalised groups, particularly women and young people, are socially and economically empowered through improved financial inclusion, increased financial awareness/literacy and increased personal incomes.
