World Education, Inc. began working in Egypt
in 1997 to increase the capacity of local
institutions to improve the social and economic
conditions of poor Egyptians, primarily women.
Since then, World Education Egypt has implemented
strong programs in economic development,
environmental health and sanitation education,
reproductive health (RH), integrated literacy,
community support for education, and school
governance and management, with special emphasis
on supporting girls’ and women’s
empowerment, participation, and leadership
in all areas.
World Education Egypt has contributed most
notably to improvements in women’s
literacy and community and parental support
for education through the strengthening and
expansion of educational governance first
through Parent Teacher Associations,
and later through mobilization of effective
school Boards of Trustees (BOTs).
World Education Egypt also assists
the Ministry of Education in strengthening
institutional capacity in policy
planning, monitoring and evaluation, and
Education Management Information System (EMIS)
development, specifically with designing
and developing national education indicators
(NEI), creating a NEI technical guide and
Condition of Education in Egypt (NEI report).
To ensure success and sustainability of its
programs, World Education Egypt also works
closely with the Authority for Adult Education
(AEA) and other Egyptian government authorities,
as well as local nongovernmental organizations
and community organizations.
Today, World Education Egypt continues to
strengthen its existing programs, and explores
additional opportunities with the potential
to build upon its global expertise in food
security, water and sanitation, child labor
and trafficking, and youth employment.
