"Educate Me" Campaign Updates

Only one in every three children in Egypt is able to read and write!
Underprivileged children in Egypt do not get equal opportunity to quality education either by not having access to education (in marginalized areas) or receiving poor quality of education due to the challenges in the public education system that include:

– Teacher-centric learning approach.
– Focus on Academic achievement and ignoring all other aspects of child development.
– Teacher-child ratio.
– Violence and unsafe learning environment.

Creating an alternative..

Imagine if underprivileged children could get quality and free of charge education with no compromises.

How

Established in 2015 in Talbeya-Haram, our community school provides underprivileged children from the local community the opportunity to get access to free, quality education, in a safe and nurturing environment. This is done through an educational model that is skill-based and learner-centered focusing on whole-child development with a focus on literacy, numeracy and social emotional learning. Educate Me Community School is government certified and serves over 350 children from Talbeya. The school is 75% run by the local community.
