Where We Work: Egypt
We’ve connected almost 30,000 young people in Egypt with employability training that has helped the majority of them secure jobs and start their own small businesses.
To achieve these results, we’ve assembled multi-sector alliances and helped local partners build organizational capacity and strengthen their services. Thanks to more than a decade working in the country, we’ve seen partners such as Nahdet El Mahrousa grow over the course of IYF countrywide initiative Egypt@Work and our regional Education & Employment Alliance. By training under these partners, young Egyptians have gained in-demand technical, vocational, and entrepreneurship skills and, through our Passport to Success® curriculum, job-winning life skills. Egypt is one of 30 countries examined in the IYF-CSIS joint Global Youth Wellbeing Index.
