Through our Community Education Centers (CECs), we operate over 100 kindergarten-style schools that offer rare educational opportunities to improverished children throughout Egypt. Our curriculum covers essential subjects like reading, math, personal hygiene,responsiblity, Arabic and English language skills and Christian values.
Since 2012, we have founded two schools for grades K-9 that serve 1800 students to provide high-quality education embedded with Christian values. We enrich the state-mandated curriculum with computer skills, vocational development, a full arts program and sports. These schools welcome Egyptians from all religious backgrouns with most of these graduates continuing on to high school. With this type of success, we are looking to expand our model as funding and approvals are achieved.

Once completed, the young women can recieve a Certificate of Competency that enables them to qualify for entrance to the state school system giving them access to new opportunities.
