Egypt

World Education began working in Egypt in 1997, with the USAID-funded Market Links Program for Women which increased the capacity of local institutions to improve the conditions of poor Egyptian handcraft producers. World Education provided training to women’s groups to expand the sale of their handicrafts through market research, the development of business plans, improvement of quality control, and establishment of new product niches. Other World Education projects in Egypt have improved education and literacy, health, and community development.

In recent years, World Education has worked to improve the country’s educational system, especially for women and girls. The Egypt Education Reform Program (ERP) addressed the lack of community involvement in education and deficiency of proper resources, and the Girls’ Improved Learning Outcomes project (GILO), a three-year program started in 2008, which aimed to increase the educational enrollment and achievement of girls in Egyptian schools. Through these programs and others, World Education has improved the educational and economic lives of Egyptians.
