Nahdet El Mahrousa
Activities and Programs

Nahdet El Mahrousa currently incubates a number of diverse programs that aim at Egypt’s development through youth capacity building, promoting the research & development culture, reversing the brain drain, economic development through SME initiatives, reviving Egyptian cultural heritage, and promoting tolerance education. Volunteerism, networking, creating awareness and building capacity of individuals and organizations are the strategies used by Nahdet El-Mahrousah to contribute to Egypt’s development. 

Among the emerging innovations that NM incubates are:
Mentoring For Leadership
The concept is to match a mentor (successful young Egyptian in his/her late twenties or thirties) with a mentee (a university student or recent graduate) in a trust based mentoring relationship that is not constrained with family or work constraints, and can last over a long duration of time. The end result is stronger youth, equipped with the tools to handle the challenges of the future and support the development of Egypt.

Youth Book
The youth book will be a channel through which Egyptian youth can read about their existing problems and how other successful youth models were able to overcome them, through identifying the current problems hindering youth from achieving their goals and defining the values (tools) needed to help them achieve those goals. The book will also present case studies and success stories as a practical guide to show youth that they are capable of solving the problem or applying the value. Learn more

Torath El Mahrousa
Torath El Mahrousa is directed at highlighting the vast and extraordinary Egyptian heritage. The program is composed of two components; the first component aims at cultivating a positive sense of identity among Egyptian children through collecting, compiling and recording what has remained from unwritten oral fairytales and representing them in modern language suitable and attractive for today’s children. The second component aims at preserving “Street Vendors Calls” which is an interesting element of Egypt’s cultural heritage, through recording their chants and making them available on a CD for art collectors, cultural museums, and art performers.

The project aims at educating children between 10 to 15 years about the Egyptian heritage with its diversity of cultures, religions, and resources so that they learn to appreciate Egypt as a country, enhance their confidence in it and feel passionate to develop it. The project also aims at educating them about the current challenges, and allowing them to understand that these challenges are facing all of us and to overcome them we need to act together. The project will provide the opportunity for Egyptian children from diverse backgrounds, religions, classes & origins to interact together to value tolerance and to cooperate together in a constructive & productive manner to develop our country.
