Volunteer Egypt

 

Volunteer Egypt


Think of Egypt and you probably think of pyramids and sand. Well, yes, but for the country's population of 100.4 million (2019) life is fast and cramped with most of the population squeezed in overcrowded conditions along the life-supporting Nile River, an area of about 40,000 square kilometres (15,000 sq mi), where the only arable land is found. According to the country's official statistics agency's report on December 3 2020, Egypt's poverty rate declined to 29.7% in the 2019-2020 fiscal year, down from 32.5% two years earlier however, despite being the second largest economy in Africa and the world's 33rd-largest economy by nominal GDP and relatively rich by African standards, Egypt remains in 116th place out of 189 countries and territories in 2019 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. Good for the better off but, as ever, there are wide disparities in income wealth across the country.



There are volunteer work opportunities in Egypt however not on the scale of pre-revolution year of 2011 and the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak. Nevertheless you can get involved in a number of volunteer work projects, but seek safety advice from your foreign office first as the safety of foreigners is not what it was. Please note that many volunteer opportunities in Egypt have been put on hold because of travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully they will be back up and running soon. In the meantime, if you run or know of a volunteer work project in Egypt let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
