Explore the historic ruins of one of the greatest, most ancient and powerful civilizations in the history of the world, while contributing to the impoverished communities of Egypt. Egypt is a beautiful country with a vastly impressive history that demonstrates the capability and fortitude of the Egyptian people.
In Egypt, there are three types of climate: Mediterranean climate on the northern coast, desert climate in inland areas, and finally, the climate of the coast of the Red Sea, equally desert but a bit milder.
However over the years, Egypt has experienced a significant economic and social decline. With a population of over 100 million and over 32% living below the poverty line, Egypt has become a worthwhile volunteer destination with ample opportunity for contribution efforts and immense potential for advancement.
